Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen recently guested on Breaking Absolutes and discussed Nightwish, her former bands ReVamp and After Forever, other collaborations, plans for a solo album, her vocal approach and more. Check out the interview below.
Floor: "I've been working on a solo album since the beginning of the pandemic, or let's say a little bit before that when the solo career in the Netherlands, and it really kickstarted my own creativity that I haven't really been able to use over the years. It's nice that it gets out, and I would like to actually finish that album and make those steps, and find a way to combine a solo career with Nightwish and my life at home, which I value even more after spending so much time here in this green heaven where I live (Sweden). Long-term, my biggest desire is to keep doing this in a good balance between everything."
At the beginning of March, Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen covered "Oblivion", originally performed and written by M83 & Susanne Sundfør for the movie Oblivion - released in 2013 - featuring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman. The song is now available via most digital platforms. Check it out via Spotify here.
Jansen: "Covering 'Oblivion' might have been the most fun I have had creating a cover so far. The epic, electronic vibe together with the dreamy vocals of Susanne was a perfect opportunity for me to adapt and perform in my vibe! Hope you enjoy!"
