“Circus Life” is a powerful two hour concert experience which captures Tarja’s 2020 performance at Circul Metroplitan Bucuresti in Bucharest, Romania. A unique in-the-round presentation adds to the dynamic and heightens Tarja’s connection with her enraptured audience. Available for the first time as part of the “Best Of: Living The Dream” limited edition Mediabook and deluxe box set. Watch a trailer below.
Looking back on 15 extremely successful years of the Finnish singer’s solo career, the Best Of contains not only Tarja‘s most well-known tracks, many of them newly remastered at Sterling Sound, and personal favorites from all six studio albums — “My Winter Storm,” “What Lies Beneath,” “Colours in the Dark,” “The Brightest Void,” “The Shadow Self,” and “In the Raw” — but also the never-before-heard song “Eye of the Storm.”
“After all these years, I still really can’t believe it’s time for me to release a proper ‘Best Of’ album,” Tarja says. “So many beautiful moments, unbelievable. It has been a dream to put together this collection. And I really hope that you will enjoy this as much as I did while making it.”
The compilation was hand-picked by Tarja herself and will be released on December 2 in a wide variety of formats. Each featuring exclusive rarities and/or the previously unreleased two-hour Circus Life concert, which is eagerly awaited by fans — as well as upgraded versions of Tarja‘s music videos. Rounded out by high-quality artwork, deluxe liner notes, and many formats to choose from, this collection is a delight for casual fans, as well as super-fans.
The standard version of the CD and vinyl contains 16 tracks (including the brand new single) as well as deluxe liner notes. The strictly limited Mediabook holds 13 further tracks and the previously unreleased, two-hour live show Circus Life. The strictly limited box set contains an additional 19 tracks selection of Tarja‘s projects including Outlanders, 4 Picture Disc, 6 art prints, 2 posters, and a fine art print signed by Tarja.
