Former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen and the band's current vocalist Floor Jansen are officially scheduled to perform a duet at this year's Metal Female Voices Fest in October.
The two singers personally made the announcement, with Tarja first naming some of her recent collaboration and then letting Floor do the talk.
"Hey, this is Floor from Revamp and I will be singing a duet with no one less than Tarja Turunen at the Metal Female Voices Festival in Belgium," Jansen said. "I'm really looking forward to sing with such a fantastic singer and a fantastic person. After so many years, our voices will be heard in one song together. I think it's gonna be awesome."
The event is set to take place in Wieze, Belgium, from October 18 to 20, also featuring performances of Lacuna Coil, Leaves' Eyes, Visions of Atlantis and more.
Speaking of Tarja's recent collaborations, Within Temptation recently posted a "Paradise (What About Us?)" video single featuring Turunen on vocals. The song itself comes as the title track of the group's latest EP album released on September 27 along with three demo tracks. You can check out the video below.
