ANETTE OLZON: New Video From Former Nightwish Frontwoman Now Playing At Bravewords.com

In celebration of her forthcoming debut solo outing, Shine, former Nightwish frontwoman, ANETTE OLZON, is pleased to unveil the official video for the track “Lies.”

 

Directed by Patrick Ullaeus (Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, In Flames, Sonata Arctica), the striking visuals perfectly complement the enormous range of OLZON‘s velvety vocal serenades. “‘Lies’ is actually a divorce song,” OLZON elaborates, “When I entered Nightwish, my [now] ex-husband wanted to divorce me. So in the middle of becoming a big singer in a big band and having my dreams fulfilled, I also had to go through a very hard divorce with a little son. I think I needed to write a song about that.” However, a song like that can work on different levels, she agrees. “That thing with Nightwish was also like a divorce, a really hard divorce. It’s always like that when people separate and go in different directions with hurt feelings.”

Best known for her time fronting symphonic metal brigade, Nightwish, for five years before fleeing the band in 2012, the Swedish born songstress has established herself as a true apex among female rock singers globally and will continue the trend with Shine. Produced by Stefan Örn and Johan Glössner, co-produced by OLZON alongside Johan Kronlund and mixed by Kronlund, Nicklas Flykt and Ronny Lahti (known for his work with Loreen and Roxette), Shine is a logical next step in OLZON‘s flourishing musical journey, crossing the borders between melancholy and hope; fragility and power.

“After the great experience of touring North American grounds for the first time last fall and meeting so many US Delainers, we are really excited to announce our quick return to the other side of the big pond in 2014 with Sonata Arctica and XANDRIA. We already had the pleasure of touring with Sonata Arctica in Europe a few years back, and if this experience was anything to go by, you surely don’t want to miss out on our upcoming tour! See you all on the road. We can’t wait!”
