Floor Jansen (Nightwish) is planning to release a new pop single on March 25. The singer confirmed the news during a recent livestream.
Jansen said the following:
“As you know, I’ve been writing music; I’ve been telling you about this for months and months. Thus far, I’ve only been saying, ‘A new song will come. A new song will come.’
And so I’ve been writing. There’s a lot of songs ready, and now there’s actually one song ready to be released. And so the thing I can tell you today is that the first song will come on the 25th of March. So now we can finally count down to a moment where something all new will come.”
It’s a pop song, so it’s not metal, it’s not rock, but it’s definitely me.”
She also discussed the rest of her new solo material:
“I guess it’s more of a mash-up [of styles] actually, though it’s not so extreme as in genres, like all of a sudden it becomes… Here’s a metal song and here’s a rock song and this is more poppy… I mean, pop music — the word of it — [it’s short for] popular music, and it kind of describes a lot, and within that it falls. I can only say that it’s not metal and it’s not rock, but it will have its influences and it will have a part of the sound.
It can’t even be so that the first song is how everything else will sound like because, yeah, if you know NIGHTWISH and also for us, it’s always so hard to pick just one song that’s gonna be like the kick-off of an album but it can never really represent everything. And I guess it’s the same for this first song that comes on the 25th of March.”
