Anette Olzon, the previous lead vocalist for symphonic metal band Nightwish just revealed more details on her solo project. Annette left the band back in 2012 under somewhat controversial circumstances. Since then we heard some funky raw material on her solo project, which can be seen here, but nothing more until now.

Her solo album will be titled ‘Shine’, and she had this to say about the album:

“I am so thrilled to finally release my first solo album,” says the lady herself. “I’ve been working on it for a long time by now. The album is very personal with songs I have started writing already in 2009 but also very recent songs. The overall message of the album is that life can be really dark and filled with hardship and sadness, but you can always choose to see some light coming through, to make you stronger and full of life — making you shine… no matter what.

“In the end, it is a rock album. Well, a pop rock album, maybe, or would you call it pop metal?”

Pop metal? these two words don’t really go together in the same sentence but we are intrigued.
