During her latest live Instagram chat, Nightwish vocalist commented on the suggestions that she record a solo album, and that if she was to pursue auch a project it is highly unliklely it would be metal.
Floor: "Since I am at home more (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), I do have more time to write. It doesn't mean that all of a sudden I've become super creative and I know exactly what I want, but it's lovely to have time to think about that and to see what comes out. I cannot imagine it would be rock or metal. If you're in a band with a songwriter such as Tuomas Holopainen, it's a little bit hard to come up with something - anything - better, I would say, and I only say that out of love and respect for him. Plus, after 20 years of metal, wouldn't it be lovely to do something completely different for me? That's how I feel."

"Take a look in the kitchen, that is the recordings of (Dutch-language song) 'De Beelden Blijven'," says Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen. "It has been an amazing honour to sing this song written by Han Kooreneef for War Child. Enjoy this quick take!"
