Falling Awake – Freetrack from the fortcoming album “What Lies Beneath”

“My first street single and very personal song to me. I wrote the song together with singer, songwriter Johnny Andrews. The storyline goes around my life as an artist today. I felt it is time to write something positive, since I truly feel good and confident today. I think this story  represents many other people as well, so I have high hopes that listeners can feel connected with it.

The idea of having many guitar players making solos for the different versions of the song, came to the picture a bit later in the production. Legendary guitar player Joe Satriani performed a guitar solo for the album version, Jason Hook, known from American metal band Five Finger Death Punch, for the single version and Argentinean guitarist Julian Barrett for the free download version..”              Taken from Press Release.        the blog team

Aw, Tarja, there you are! And with a whole new layout! :D All this news at once… it’s impossible to describe how painful you made it for us to wait for WLB now. :evil:

Falling Awake… is… well, amazing. Not just the composition and the sound (the guitars!!!) but the feeling in here… even this first snippet of What Lies Beneath is so much more… profound in a way than what we have heard from you before. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy listening to a song. It’s so… euphoric! (Funny for a metal song, no? ;) ) And it makes me happy to know that you are in such a place.

You know, there was so much more I should have said to you at Miskolc than ‘hug me’. It was more than I dreamed – the orchestra, the choir, even your voice exceeded everything I have heard before! It was a night I would relieve a hundred times if I could. And all the new songs… my God! Girl, you really weren’t overemphasizing, were you? :P Everything about this new album seems to knock me off my feet. You have about a thousand reasons to feel good and proud of yourself right now, and I hope you’re counting them, because you surely deserve to. 8)

You know, you have truly grown since I met you, and everything about you has matured… OK, except your looks, maybe :P …It’s been a real joy for me to follow your growth as an artist. I am proud to support you, I really am. I hope you know that I’ll be doing so for as long as we’re both here. ;)

Thank you.

You know, it is crazy sometimes, because I always feel an strong connection with your songs, and I always get the message very quickly.
That’s what happened to me when listening “Falling Awake”: as much as I felt strongly related to that (I’m currently going to a similar situation, and I’m leaving the past behind), I knew perfectly what where you talking about. I LOOOVEEEE YOUUUUU SOOO MUUUCH!!!! I wanna hug you right now!! hahaha, I feeel so proud of you, and I’m very happy to see how much you’ve grown as an artist during these years.
You’re a big inspiration for me girl!! and be sure that I’ll be always here, standing next to you, like the rest of your fans to support you, forever.
Keep having fun, keep being awesome, and keep being cute :-D
