Last February the vocalist released the solo single Fire through ADA, the division of Warner Music Group dedicated to the distribution of labels and independent artists. The Dutch woman says about the musical direction of the song:

“Is a song Popso it’s not metal, it’s not rock, but it’s definitely about me.

I guess it’s more of a mix, although it’s not as extreme as in the genres, as if it suddenly becomes… Here’s a Metal song and here’s a Rock song and this is more Pop… I mean, Pop music, the word, comes from popular music, and describes it a lot, and that’s where it comes in. I can only say that it is not Metal and it is not Rock, but will have its influences and a part of the sound”.

About Floor Jansen

Jansen is known for being the leader of the Symphonic Metal band NIGHTWISH, with multi-million sales and international success. As part of the band, Jansen has achieved two number one albums in Finland and top five in Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Born in the Netherlands, Jansen joined her first band, one of the first Symphonic Metal groups in the world, AFTER FOREVERwhen he was only 16 years old. The group released five albums between 2000 and 2007, before splitting up in 2009.

Jansen’s next band, REVAMP, released two albums in 2010 and 2013, before joining NIGHTWISH as a full-time member. NIGHTWISH’s first album with Jansen as lead singer was 2015’s “Endless Forms Most Beautiful”, which landed in the Top 10 worldwide. This was followed by 2020’s “Human. :II: Nature,” which was also an international hit.

Jansen has toured extensively with the band and has appeared on three of NIGHTWISH’s live albums “Showtime, Storytime”, “Vehicle Of Spirit” and “Decades: Live In Buenos Aires”.

In 2019, Jansen participated in the popular Dutch TV show “Beste Zangers”, where he had a great success with “Phantom Of The Opera” with Henk Poort. She was recognized with the award Dutch Popprijs, a prestigious award for artists who have made significant contributions to Dutch music. That same year, tickets for her first solo tour sold out in less than 24 hours.

Jansen has stated: “I am delighted to partner with ADA in this exciting phase of my career and starting my path as a solo artist. ADA is the perfect partner to help me reach as many people as possible around the world, while staying true to my indie roots.” Sander Stijnen, Head of A&R and ADA Benelux, added: “Floor has one of the voices most iconic and is a true legend of the music industry. I’m very happy that we can work with her material on her own, which has seen her grow and develop as an artist and songwriter. I think people are going to be blown away by the direction she’s taken with the new music of hers.”

In November of last year, the artist spoke about her years in AFTER FOREVER, the Symphonic Metal band in which he became known. The artist was in the group from 1997 until its dissolution in 2009 and she commented that she was better leave it in the past.

NIGHTWISH’s last album was “Human. :II: Nature.”, “Ad Astra”.
