Within Temptation Planning To Work On New Music In The Fall

It looks like Within Temptation are planning to start working on new music in the fall. Sharon Den Adel confirmed the news in the below interview with Kaaos TV:

The singer said the following:

“We’re gonna be touring maybe next year again. But after the summer [of playing shows], which will end for us in September — we will start to write again. Because we want to maintain that, because we are on a new path and we still have to develop ourselves in direction more than we are doing already.

I love touring, but I’ve been on tour already now almost for a year again. And so it’s, for me, very important to be in the studio back and to work on new ideas,” she continued. “And — I don’t know — I just wanna make music also. I wanna combine it better than being on tour for four years again and then start a new album; I wanna start now already.”

She went on to say the band are considering different options to release new music, including possibly releasing various singles before finishing an album:

“The people are not really waiting for an album anymore — people are actually waiting for a new song. So we want to give people maybe sooner some songs already — new songs — and then eventually release an album… Do it more like DJs — they come up with new songs here and there sooner, and then they drop an album later on. But you still have, of course, the way you have to do your promotion — you still have to have the promotional moment to build something up for. So, we’re still figuring out how to do that.”

She also added the following when asked about the possibility of releasing an EP:

“No, because EPs don’t get the attention of journalists or anything. It’s too small — people don’t pay attention enough to it, and you give away a lot of new songs, which you worked very hard [on]. So you want to combine it all on a new album.”

Within Temptation Premiere “Supernova” Music Video

Within Temptation have premiered a new video for their song “Supernova.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Resist.” Sharon Den Adel commented:

“I wrote this song for my dad. He died last year in April. It’s about the fact, when somebody passes away, you hope they’ll give you a sign that they’re okay. This song is about you hoping to see this ‘supernova,’ this super-bright star. This super glow, like a sign from this afterlife.”
