February 16, 2011, 7 years ago
According to a posting on her official blog, NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon will be hitting the studio in March to begin work on the band's new album, Imaginarium, due out in 2012."Just got an email from Tuomas (Holopainen) from London and he says all is going so super good and he is so happy and that made me equally full of happiness. I am so looking forward to hear the result when I enter the studio in March."
In the midst of recording a new album, the Finnish symphonic metallers have been preparing a movie. Imaginarium is a music fantasy film based on the forthcoming Nightwish album of the same title and its 13 songs.
The protagonist of the film is a songwriter with an otherworldly imagination. He is an old man who still thinks he`s a young boy. While asleep he travels into his distant past where his dreams of old come back to him mixed to the young boy`s world of fantasy and music.
In his dreams the old man fights to find the memories most important to him.
This never-done-before project originates to more than two years in the past when Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen first introduced his ambitious idea of the Imaginarium concept to the fellow band members and to Mr. Stobe Harju, the director behind 'The Islander' music video. He will be the director of this full-length feature. The film will be produced by Solar Films Inc. together with Nightwish.
The shootings for Imaginarium will begin this spring, it will have its premiere in 2012 and the album it`s based on will be released in an undefined point in time.
Nightwish will hold a press conference related to this project at the end of February.
