Anette told us something about a solo album in her blog:
"Hi everyone and thanks for the happy comments, that gets me warm inside;=)
The album is of course just in the startings but I will contribute doing the songs together with the guys and I will start that immediately. Anders is thinking on his side and me here... Then we meet and try out the ideas and we´ll see what it will be like. But yeah, rocky it will be for sure. Not metal, but rock;=)
And about Nightwish, you all know I love that band and of course this is not a solo career, but an album. I cant sit and do nothing for maybe 1.5- 2 years. None of the guys can either. Marco has Tarot and several other bands and projects, Emppu Brother Firetribe and projects, Tuomas bands and projects and Jukka his merch company. So, I need something too. And I dont want another band, cause I have Nightwish. Then a solo will be just perfect. I can decide when and what I will tour or perform, all in the aspect of when Nightwish will do something new. We dont know that. Its all in Tuomas hands and he is the creator. We are the instruments.
I hope people can stop thinking that the singer CANT do anything else but the instrumentalists can. I have the same right as my fellow band members to do anything on the side when NW is not playing or touring.
I am for sure excited and I know I have my part to play with the songs and the album and I have already started thinking of songs and lyrics. It was a long time since I did songs, but I will soon be back in business;=)"
