Not to mention the fact that she's recording a mystery cover song, and her brother's doing backing vocals for it. Unless I miss my guess, we now know the titles of about 11 songs off the album, and that there's a cover song- must be most of the songs by now, I heard she was recording 15.
Yup, it's sweet having her brother on MWS - so long as his voice is good, and he's not stuck on there for sentimental value. ^^ That's quite a decent number of songs for an album, assuming they're all kept on there. As for the cover song, I'm crossing my fingers over that one - my confidence in her cover versions was knocked just a tad after hearing her attempt at 'Smell Like A Teen Spirit'.
LOL, yes, that song was... memorable... Methinks she could have used better judgement in picking out a cover song there. I mean, I'm not a huge fan of the song or the band in the first place, but if ever there was a song for Tarja NOT to cover, that would be it... But still, look on the bright side, it can't get much worse.
I don't know as all 15 songs will be included on the album, I believe 12-13 will be included, the rest will be bonus tracks, I presume.
As to her brother- she has two brothers, Timo and Toni, I believe, and I know one of them is a singer- Tarja performed some guest vocals for his first album, although I don't think it's out yet. I'm guessing it's the same brother returning the favour, but who knows?

I rather like that song. Also, Tori Amos did a classical spin on it, which was actually half decent. The possibility that she could have sung a song better than Tarja squicks my brain. But yesh, I hated watching Tarja's performance of it - she looked little and generally folorn. *turns into angry mother hen*
