Tarja Premieres First Single And Video From Act II

Finnish singer and songwriter singer Tarja, has released a video for the first single from her upcoming live art-album and video, “Act II.” The song titled “Love To Hate,” is off the 2016 release “The Shadow Self,” and was recorded at Metropolis Studios in London, where Tarja and her band performed the song for 20 winners from various locations throughout Europe as part of a 75 minute live set.

“Live videos became more and more mere documentations focusing on a band’s performance in a remote, distant and technical way. The lightshow and the LED’s only support the band’s performance but have no significance of their own.

With “Act II” it is different. Here everything has a significance, every little detail is important because it is not only a live-recording, a live-documentation.

In the video, every song was treated in order to transport the feeling I wanted to express live at the show. As close as possible to the way the audience might have felt it that night. We used additional footages, used video snippets, photos and graphics and worked with lights, framings and reflections, changed colours and created moods, distorted pictures and inserted slides. And sometimes we kept the pure picture because itself it transported everything we wanted.

“Act II” which is a follow up to her “Act I” live release, will be available via earMUSIC on July 27, 2018, and is currently available via preorder on the Act II website.
