Tarja Turunen (Ex-Nightwish) Premieres “Railroads” Music Video

Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) has premiered a new video for her song “Railroads.” This track is from her new album “In The Raw,” which will be released on August 30.

Turunen previously said the following about the song:

“Apparently, it seems like I wrote weird lyrics, yet I pulled inspiration from one book. Paulo Coelho is a very important writer, and I have discovered a lot about myself through his texts. In ‘Aleph’, he goes on a train journey through Siberia, and he writes a book based on his experiences on that trip. I wanted to go beyond everything and think about myself and my own journey. The whole album is a journey, in a way.

The funny thing is, ‘Railroads’ is a very old song which I have had on demo for years. It always felt like a train ride and I even named it like that before having any lyrics or before ‘Aleph’ was published. It’s so old I can’t even remember when I started writing it, for the first or second album? And I’ve only finished it now.”
