Anette Olzon - Solo Project

Recently Nightwish parted company with singer Anette Olzon.  Soon after I went to see Nightwish in Manchester with the awesome Floor Jansen.  I have to say it was a treat.  However, Anette has been working hard since the split and it seems that she recently posted this to her official blog:

"I just finished writing my new song that I've been working on for some weeks... This time I am doing the lyrics in Swedish and it was a bit hard but also challenging to do that, and now I've just sent it to my friend Fredrik Bergh to see how it will sound after the music is added. Since I don't play instruments so well, I always need help with recording. That, and Fredrik is fast and really good at what he does.

"The way we work is that I sing the song and record it directly in toGarage Band and set the tempo I want it to have. Then I write down the lyrics and also add little comments to Fredrik how I have thought the song should be 'built.' Then I send the song to iTunes and email lyrics and the song file to Fredrik and voila! — his magic can start working.

"I love the technology of today, making it so easy to create music, even when we live far apart in the country!"

So it seems we may be hearing a solo album from her very soon?

Floating is a demo Anette recorded back in 2009 and is yet to be released.
