Following the announcement of her solo career and her leaving the band in 2005, TARJA released her own rock- and metal ablum, titled My Winter Storm, two years later (2007). Three years after the last album The Shadow Self (2016), In The Raw brings TARJA's outstanding and beautiful soprano to the forefront once again. In collaboration with the musicians in her band and their well-tried production team, the most important idea was that gold doesn't necessarily have to shine but can be a raw element in its natural state. This concept of gold in its raw form has also been made visible in the album's artwork, with TARJA - photographed by Tim Tronckoe - showing it in St. Michael's Grotto on Gibraltar, surrounded by vivid colours and golden brilliance.
