New Track "Falling" Streaming From Former Nightwish Vocalist Anette Olzon

Former Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon, who split with the band back on the North American Tour in October 2012, has resurfaced with a new solo record called "Shine." The album's first single "Falling" can be heard streaming below. "Shine" is scheduled for release on February 28th (EU) and March 18th (North America) via earMusic.

"I am so thrilled to finally release my first solo album," says Anette Olzon. "I've been working on it for a long time by now... The album is very personal with songs I have started writing already in 2009 but also very recent songs. The overall message of the album is that life can be really dark and filled with hardship and sadness, but you can always choose to see some light coming through, to make you stronger and full of life - making you SHINE... no matter what."

And what about the musical direction? "In the end, it is a rock album," says Anette. "Well, a pop rock album maybe, or would you call it pop metal?"

Catchy. I listened to this once, got the chorus stuck in my head and had to come back to listen again. I think I like her voice here more than with NW. Maybe an indicator that she wasn't the best fit for Nightwish (at least to me.) Maybe I can also use this to get my daughters (ages 11 & 14) into Nightwish and then on to other similar bands.
