Nightwish have announced January 10th, 2012 as the release date for their upcoming album Imaginaerum. It’s their first new release since 2007′s Dark Passion Play, their first album with new singer Anette Olzon. This new album is going to also be the soundtrack to a feature film with the same name.
Keyboardist/songwriter Tuomas Holopainen states, “It was important from the very beginning that the album would work as its own individual piece of art, as well. It is a thematic album about life itself, about imagination, love, goodness and beauty, with a touch of darkness and melancholy, which are strongly included in all of those things mentioned.”
