Anette Olzon: shining on

Former Nightwish singer Anette Olzon has released a brand new song taken from her upcoming solo album.

Check out Falling below:

Debut solo album Shine will be the singer’s first significant work since leaving the symphonic Finns under somewhat unceremonious circumstances last year.

“I am so thrilled to finally release my first solo album,” says the lady herself. “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.

“In the end, it is a rock album. Well, a pop rock album, maybe, or would you call it pop metal?”

Shine lands on March 31 via EARmusic.
