The official video for the song “My Indigo” from WITHIN TEMPTATION frontwoman Sharon Den Adel‘s solo project, also called MY INDIGO, can be seen below.
The singer announced the new project’s existence via a video message on Facebook in which she described the MY INDIGO material as “very personal” and revealed that composing the songs was a therapeutic experience that helped he deal with an undisclosed family “crisis.”
She said in a statement: “For many years, we’ve been touring and every time we came home, I used to start writing songs almost immediately and was happy to do so. After the last tour, I tried to do the same, but it wasn’t the same. Eventually I found myself in a crisis which was bigger than just not being able to write songs. The years of touring and working under a certain pressure took its toll and besides that there were things in my personal life I had to deal with.
“I really took time off, but when I started writing again, it was something totally different than WT, but this was what I needed and I embraced it. One song led to another and it turned into a whole album. I gave it a name and it’s called MY INDIGO. MY INDIGO is about my journey these last few years and I would like to share it with you.
“Besides all of this, I’m happy to tell you that my journey has led me back to WITHIN TEMPTATION. There will be a new album and a tour but more about that in the near future.
“My first single [has just been] released and this song is the core of my album and has the same name: ‘My Indigo’.
“‘My Indigo’ is not at all like WITHIN TEMPTATION and it wasn’t meant to be that at all. I wrote it first of all for myself, but nevertheless I hope you’ll enjoy it as well!”
WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s last studio album, “Hydra”, came out in January 2014. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Unforgiving” debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s first appearance in the Billboard Top 20.
