Im Oktober letzten Jahres wurden die ersten Demoaufnahmen für das kommende Album gemacht. Doch nun wird die weitere Studioarbeit verschoben.
Grund: Die Sängerin Anette Olzon ist schwanger.
Auf ihrer Homepage gab sie dazu folgendes Statement ab:
“My dear blog readers and also Nightwish fans;=)
I have held a little secret for you all for some time now, but today I feel I want to share it with you all. As you all know, I am very private and dont want to share to much about my personal life, but due to some speculations and since I am so happy I have decided to tell my secret:
Last autumn in the middle of my demo recordings of my solo album, I started to feel very, very tired and also nauseated. I took a pregnancy test and guess if me and my bf was really surprised to see that I had gotten pregnant. Since I had decided to not have any more children than my son, it was totally not planned, but after the very first shock, it felt really, really good;=)
Now I have almost done half the pregnancy and I am feeling extremely good, but its due to this I decided to not do the solo this year. I am sure you all can understand this decision better now and I do promise to release the songs at another time;=)”
Welche genauen Auswirkungen das für Nightwish haben wird, lässt sich allerdings noch nicht sagen. Man wird zunächst weiterhin auf neues Material warten müssen.
