Finally - my single LIES is out;=)

Hi all my dear ones and a 


For me, this day is EXTRA filled with LOVE since today my single LIES is finally out in ITUNES and my video for it will be premiered today=)

I so hope you will like it as much as I do. This song is one of my own favorites from my album SHINE and is also one that I really love to sing due to its dynamics, spinning from using my lower voice to my head voice and then some raspy rock´n roll voice=) Fun!

Here´s all the different local premieres of the video in different countries and the BIG formal premiere is on Ear musics official you tube channel this afternoon at 16! The video is directed by the amazing Patric Ulleus from Revolver and he´s done the video exactly as my vision was and he is a wizard;=)

wow, i'm gonna buy me the single asap and i'll burn it on a cdr with falling, so i'll enjoy it better! (my pc sound system is far from being great...) it will help to wait for your album to be out!
i wish you and johan a happy evening, looks like it'll be great! (and i do hope you will have a good champagne, there's so much who could be tasteless, includes some famous ones... it helps to have a grandfather who came from the champagne region, lol)
kisses & love for you and your family <3

Hep-Hep Steff said...

i just bought it on amazon, and i could only say that I LOVE IT! <3 thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day dear Anette.
I wish you and Johan all the love of the world today =).

I'm pretty sure this is a very special day to you, finally your dream is coming true and I feel so happy that you're sharing it with us. I can't wait to listen to the song and specially watch the video, the premiere I watched is so beautiful and I can't take the anxious. It's been a long time since I last heard you so now is a very special day to me too.
As I don't have anyone to celebrate this love day with me I'll dance Lies by myself because I believe that we can't be happy or give our love to anyone if we don't give it to ourselves so I'm happy anyway and once again, anxious.
I wish you all the best and may this be the first day of the rest of your beautiful and happy musical life!

Love, love, love, Carol

Robermifernes said...

hey again!
just watched the video for 'Lies' on the polish website - awesome! I can see you are really glad and enjoyed with the making the video. Where was it shoot?

Enjoy your day! Celebrate! You had a great reason to it! and now I am going to listen again ;>

Philippa said...

Such a beautiful song Nettie, I really love it! And the video is simply stunning, I love the Nordic atmosphere of it.

Also, someone's made a really beautiful piano cover of Lies and uploaded it to YouTube. I thought I'd share it with you because I'm sure you'd appreciate it.

Enjoy your day and Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Anette!

Once again, a happy valentines day to you and Johan :). You deserve drinking champagne, because this is really a special day. So far, I have only seen positive reactions on "Lies" and I wish you with all my heart that it will have the success it deserves :).

As I already said, it´s brilliant. All of it, the music video and the song, a good mixture of pop and rock influences. I already got the single via amazon and it´s on my mp3 - player and clearly the song of the day for me :). I really, really like it, you and Patric have done an amazing work.

Enjoy your day now and lots of hugs to you :).

Lucinda said...

I like the song. I'm happy you kept the "Rock" basics (drums, etc.) and that you're using your voice in many ways, that's what I like about you! The video is very well produced, simple but with beautiful landscapes and a peaceful & happy Anette in it ;)
For me, it's still a quiet, mid-tempo song, so I hope there will be more dynamic (by that I mean faster tempo especially) tracks in "Shine", because you just rock them!

Happy Valentine (and video release)'s day!


Pascal said...

I´ve also written a song review to it on amazon, which I now translated into english. I want to share it with you and will also post it on your facebook later on, hopefully that people will share it so that the word about the song is spread :). There you go, I hope you like the review:

Second song from the upcoming album - great as expected (5/5 rating).

And there she is again: Ex – Nightwish – singer Anette Olzon. After we had already got a superb pretaste with the song „Falling“ of the upcoming solo – Abum „Shine“ (local release date: 28.03.2014) we now get to hear new material out of it. This happens with a first official single, to which was taken also an impressive music video. „Lies“ is the name of the song and it should make hopeful expectations of the album rise. Anette´s voice on that song is very powerful, the instrumental work is great as it was already at „Falling“ and gives a good mixture of both rock – and pop elements. It is difficult to say which song is the better one in the end, maybe none of them is better than the other. But what can be assured: With „Lies“ we deal again with a song that is extremely well – suited to Anette Olzon and that can rise to the position of a real earworm due to both catchy stanzas and chorus. To cut a long story short: The first single is definitely worthy as such and should become a full success. Two complete songs of the album are known now, both are excellent, end of march can arrive with pleasure. I´m really looking forward to „Shine“.

OH MY GOD, ANETTE! Now I'm pretty sure you want to kill me hahaha.
What a video! What a song! What a vooooice!! Girl, you are the best ever! I can't think how I could live all these years without your beautiful and sweet voice in my life. Congratulations to you and Patrick.
It is beautiful, cold, deep, romantic, sad, sweet, wonderful. It has your face, your shining smile and the ambience of paradise *-*..can't take for the rest of the album.
Thank you so much.
I love you and this is not a lie haha.

Love, Carol

Hi, finally found the video Lies from Youtube, (Radiorock missed the release, or is it just me, i couldn´t find it from there). So beautiful scenery! Somehow some parts of the song make me think of Lappland and Shamans/"Lapplands häxor" and yoiking ;) Now to sleep filled with delight <3 -Mia
