The idea behind Outlanders was “to create something exciting and new: Outlanders combine chilled but exciting electronic beats with Tarja’s emotional, classically trained vocal skills and unique guitar performances. These three elements are a constant in all the songs and are equally important.”
The Outlanders project has been a long time coming to fruition, having been recorded and mixed mainly on the Caribbean island of Antigua during the last 10 years.
Outlanders have previously released a video for Closer To The Sky.
