I know you all have been waiting for the announcement we were going to make, and here it is. Stranger Things really helped a lot. Sometimes you need a break from something to do something different, to recharge inspiration. It is fascinating how subconsciously we can tell ourselves we need to fix something. A solo project was never planned, but just happened to me.
I love how they open pre chorus and second chorus continuing momentum of the song. I think through music I can do that and this was something necessary. You made us volume tapes and mailed them to us while we were abroad. Every track here could be released as a single and strike gold. For me a good song is a song that touches me, in a positive or negative way. Overall, it was a decent song.
How did you do that? Another great thing about this song is its buildup towards the chorus where chorus is opened with great big drums and really good synth melody which will definitely be stuck in my ear for next few days. She transformed her deepest feelings into small songs with personal lyrics and an airy sound. What do I want to do in the last 20 years that I am still on stage? That is something I wanted to put in the music. I need to deal with these kind of things, I need to give it a face and a voice, and that became My Indigo. You have a few shows lined up for My Indigo.
After 20 years I found out that for a while, I could not write that music anymore. My Indigo is the beautiful and raw result of two years of retreat, healing and exploration. Did you approach it with open arms? But what does it mean for you personally? The process of composing was cited as introspective and soul-searching, as the fear of a permanent creativity loss was recorrent for den Adel during this period. She became world famous with the epic, symphonic metal sound of , but tomorrow Sharon den Adel will release a solo album with a completely different sound. Looking back on my own past and things that happened, I had to go back to that. Follow us on or and subscribe to our no worries, no spam! I hope you understand a little bit better why I did so, or we did so.
Here, the tracks are less about power and bravado but are more personal and intimate. Build ups that lead to bigger arrangements are something Within Temptation has mastered during all of this years, songs like Stand My Ground, Angels and Shot In The Dark are great example of that. Today my first single will be released and this song is the core of my album and has the same name: My Indigo. We are delighted to share our album review with you. It has always been like a roller coaster with Within Temptation, since the day we started the band.
With these conversations we have been able to settle it and I have been able to give it a place. With Within Temptation I can stand on the barricade. It can be the melancholy in metal or the positivity that reggae has. Have you heard any early responses from listeners? How much I'd like to give you one now, I'm not able to yet. That means more time for family and friends. About Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel became world famous as front-woman of metal band Within Temptation. What was it like for you to break away from that comfort zone? Eventually I found myself in a crisis which was bigger than just not being able to write songs.
That in mind, what has the past 4 years been like for yourself and the band? I am not sure they will react to the whole album. What is really great about cassette is, yes, you can fast forward and rewind, but for the most part, you really need to listen to the entire album. I liked what I was doing, but I never had the time to process the highs and lows of our career as well as personal life. I would like to perform, but that is not my main goal, my main goal is to really write the music. Usage of big drums in general is great.
We are now reliving all the Star Wars movies through him again. Because of that, I am also going to release a cassette tape. Touring the world over, recording album after album, and so much more, den Adel found it all coming to a grinding halt when she found herself at a loss for inspiration to write for Within Temptation again. Also, I never really had the time to reevaluate what I was doing, to think, do I still like what I am was doing? Normally when Daniel started playing, I start singing immediately. Besides also struggling with personal problems, den Adel decided to write songs for herself in order to better deal with those said problems, in which was later revealed that her father was extremely ill. The train started moving and it just has kept on going. The songs are personal, a mechanism to cope with things, it was never my first intention to share any of this work, until now.
