Tarja Releases Music Video for “Love To Hate” for Upcoming Live Album Release “Act II”

Tarja has revealed the first song from her brand new live-art-album and video Act II.

The bombastic live version of “Love to Hate” was recorded at renowned Metropolis Studios in London, UK, and showcases Tarja’s impressive vocal range and talent for compositions.

In London, Tarja and her band performed an intimate, yet rocking version of the fan favorite in front of 20 lucky winners from all over Europe. The song, originally from her worldwide chart success The Shadow Self, gives a powerful taste of the forthcoming live release and can be found on the video version of Act II only.

Act II, the follow up to Tarja’s worldwide Top 10 chart success, combines two incredible, yet slightly different live performances on video.

The first chapter, Metropolis Alive, was filmed two months prior to the release of Tarja’s 2016 success The Shadow Self in an intimate surrounding at renowned Metropolis Studios in London, UK. The second chapter of Act II was recorded on November 29, 2016 at the magnificent Teatro della Luna in Milan, Italy, and includes numerous hits from all four Tarja albums.

Even though the shows deliberately differ in look, sound, approach to the music and adrenaline, both have one thing in common: from the very first to the very last tune, the state of the art production displays Tarja’s energetic performance and her graceful, charming presence.

“Live videos became more and more mere documentations focusing on a band’s performance in a remote, distant, and technical way,” said Tarja. “The light show and the LEDs only support the band’s performance but have no significance of their own.

“With Act II, it is different. Here, everything has significance, every little detail is important because it is not only a live-recording, a live-documentation.

“In the video, every song was treated in order to transport the feeling I wanted to express live at the show. As close as possible to the way the audience might have felt it that night. We used additional footages, used video snippets, photos and graphics, and worked with lights, framings and reflections, changed colours and created moods, distorted pictures and inserted slides. And sometimes, we kept the pure picture because itself it transported everything we wanted.

Act II is not a live-video — it is a live-art-video and you are free to discuss it very controversially, which is exactly what I want.”

Act II will be released on July 27 on earMUSIC as 2CD digipak, 3LP Gatefold (180g, black), 2DVD, Blu-ray, Limited Mediabook 2CD+2BD (including two full live shows filmed at Woodstock Festival in Poland and Hellfest in France as bonus) and Digital.

A wide variety of exclusive, limited fan items and bundles can be found on Tarja’s official web shop.

Act I, Tarja’s first-ever live release, charted Top 10 all over Europe as well as almost all over the world, with a sensational No. 5 in Germany’s General Charts. The video version even remained for over two months at the peak of the Finnish music video charts.

Act II keeps the energy and aesthetics of its predecessor, but adds a new chapter to the live saga in a brand new way.

Turn off the lights, volume up, and dive into the show!
