Tarja Turunen has released a live version of her track Love To Hate.

The song originally appeared on her 2016 album The Shadow Self, with the footage taken from the former Nightwish vocalist’s upcoming album Act II, which will arrive on July 27 via earMUSIC.

The new package is split into two separate sets – the first, which includes Love To Hate, was filmed at London’s Metropolis Studios on June 6 last year in front of just 20 competition winners from across Europe.

The second set was recorded on November 29, 2016, at Milan’s Teatro della Luna Allago, and features tracks from all four of Tarja’s solo albums, including InnocenceDie AliveUntil My Last Breath and a cover of Muse track Supremacy.

Tarja says: “Act II is not a live video, it is a live art video and you are free to discuss it very controversially – which is exactly what I want.”

Act II will launch on 2CD digipak, 3LP, DVD, Blu-ray, limited edition mediabook 2CD/2Blu-ray and on digital formats and is available for pre-order below.

Tarja will tour across Europe throughout October.
