NIGHTWISH frontwoman Floor Jansen recently told FaceCulture that she was “very, very happy” with how the new disc turned out. “Already with the first notes, I [was, like], 'Oh, yeah. There we go,'” she said. “It's as much NIGHTWISH thing you might expect from us as, 'Wow! What's this now? What's happening?'”
She continued: “I can't really say too much about it, because there are a couple of things that are the same, a couple of things that are different. But all I can say is I'm very happy with it and I'm very excited about it. And I think people that already knew NIGHTWISH will really enjoy this.”
NIGHTWISH's new album will mark the band's second full-length effort with the Dutch singer, who has been touring with the group since 2012.
NIGHTWISH's latest release was the “Decades: Live In Buenos Aires” set, which came out on December 6 as a Blu-ray digibook, 2CD digipak, Blu-ray+2CD earbook and 3LP via Nuclear Blast. The effort was recorded on September 30, 2018 at Estadio Malvinas in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the “Decades” tour in support of the band's compilation album of the same name.
