NIGHTit’s Sol Jansen revealed the cover of his new solo single, “Fire”. Check it out below. The title will be released on March 25.
Less than two months ago, the 41-year-old Dutch-born singer, who made her live debut with NIGHT nearly a decade ago said of the musical direction of “Fire”“It’s a pop song, so it’s not metal, it’s not rock, but it’s definitely me.” Jansen went on to explain that the track won’t necessarily be representative of all the new solo music she’s been working on in recent months. “I guess it’s more of a mash-up [of styles] actually,” she said, referring to her upcoming collection of solo material, “although it’s not as extreme as genres, like all of a sudden it becomes… Here’s a metal song and here is a rock song and this one is more pop… I mean, pop music – the word for it – [it’s short for] popular music, and that describes a lot of things, and it fits into that. I can only say it’s not metal and it’s not rock, but it will have its influences and it will have some of the sound. It’s not even possible that the first song will be like this that everything else will sound like, yeah, if you know NIGHT and also for us, it’s always so hard to choose just one song that will be like the kickoff of an album but it can never really represent everything. And I guess it’s the same for this first song coming out on March 25th.”
Last summer, Ground said during an appearance on the “Breaking Absolutes With Peter Orullian” podcast that she had been working on a solo album since shortly before the pandemic hit. “And it really kickstarted my own creativity that I haven’t really been able to use over the years,” she said. “It’s good that he’s coming out. And I would like to do more and finish this album and take these steps and find a way to combine a solo career with NIGHT and my life at home, which I appreciate even more after spending so much time here in this green paradise [in Sweden] where I live.”
Jansen discussed the prospect of doing a solo album during a 2020 interview with metal hammer magazine. At the time, she said: “After 20 years of rock and metal, I think I would like to do something else. I don’t mean to stop with NIGHTbut something next.
“I recently participated in a TV show in my home country in the Netherlands [reality TV show ‘Beste Zangers’, which translates to ‘Best Singers’]. It really inspired me to start writing, and the stuff that came out is very calm.
“I would love to make an album where less is more. Something different – not because I’m bored, but because if you’re already in one of the biggest bands of your genre and you have someone one like Tuomas Holopainen as a songwriter, I don’t really see what I would add by making another metal album myself.”
Earlier in 2020, Jansen spoke about a possible musical direction for his solo album during a instagram live to discuss. She said: “I can’t imagine it would be rock or metal – just because I’ve done rock now, and metal I’ve done a lot. And I’m already in one of the best bands, I think, that came out there, in my opinion, to my liking. Also, if you’re in a band with a songwriter like Tuomas Holopainen, it’s kind of hard to find something – anything – better, I would say, and I say that only out of love and respect for him. Also, after 20 years in metal, wouldn’t it be nice to do something completely different for me? This is how I feel.”
Jansen played live with NIGHT for the first time on October 1, 2012 at Showbox Sodo in Seattle, Washington following the abrupt departure of the singer from the group for five years, Anette Olzon.
Jansen officially joined NIGHT in 2013 and made his recording debut with the band in 2015 “Most Beautiful Endless Shapes” album.
NIGHTthe ninth studio album by, “Human. :II: Nature.” was released in April 2020 via Nuclear explosion. The effort is a double album containing nine tracks on the main CD and one long track, divided into eight chapters on CD 2.
