Tarja Turunen has shared an unboxing video showcasing her upcoming live album Act II.

It’ll launch this coming Friday (July 27) via earMUSIC on 2CD digipak, 3LP, DVD, Blu-ray, limited edition mediabook 2CD/2Blu-ray and on digital formats.

The video sees the vocalist examining the various album formats, which features the singles Love To Hate, Undertaker and Victim Of Ritual (opens in new tab).

Watch the video below.

The live package is split into two separate sets – the first was captured at London’s Metropolis Studios on June 6 last year in front of 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 and a cover of Muse track Supremacy.

Other bonus material will also be included.

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. Turn off the lights, volume up and dive into the show!”

Tarja will tour across Europe throughout October.
