Tarja releases beautiful gothic video for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” from upcoming dark Christmas album

As previously reported, former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen is bringing the festive season early with the release of her brand new Christmas album, “From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)”, on November 17. As a first taste of the album, Tarja has released a unique video for the haunting opening track, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” The Finnish soprano surprises with an excitingly dark version of the classic Christmas hymn, which with its intensive mood, grand orchestra sound, and electronic programming, sets the tone for a very special Christmas.

The official video is set in a gloomy, dreamy surrounding and gives a deeper insight into the album’s visual world – introducing Tarja’s dark and light character. Watch  the video inside!

The album includes eleven Christmas classics and brings them to a never-before-seen level, uniquely blending Tarja’s classically trained voice with darker gothic influences.

Utilizing the sound of a grand orchestra, the successful Finnish solo artist puts a sinister spin on traditional songs like “O Tannenbaum”, “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” and “Feliz Navidad”, reminding the listener of a dark movie score.
