I like the fact that I won’t have to tell my child all the fun stories when I’m in the rocking chair, but instead she can now become a part of that story herself, – says Piret Järvis-Milder, who now, 15 years later, is rocking again as a part of Vanilla Ninja.
Last year, Vanilla Ninja announced they were coming back after a 15-year long pause. „We’ve been working on some new music together with David Brandes and a special surprise is that Triinu has rejoined the band.” wrote Piret in one of her social media posts. Vanilla Ninja’s new single „Gotta Get It Right”, recorded with their former manager David Brandes, was released just before Midsummer.
Vanilla Ninja was formed in 2002. It then consisted of Lenna Kuurmaa (35), Katrin Siska (37), Piret Järvis-Milder (37) and Maarja Kivi (35). Maarja left the band in 2004 due to pregnancy. Maarja’s place in Vanilla Ninja was filled by Triinu Kivilaan (32) from Viljandi. The comeback’s now being carried out by the band embodied by Lenna, Katrin, Piret and Triinu.
Piret says that their first appearance with the new material will take place at the beginning of August on German TV. However, it’s too early to state when the first full-length concert will happen.
We’ll see what else is corona planning to do with our lives. If we still have to dance to its tune before people are able to sing and dance to ours. But you can’t carry on without the concerts. We’re hoping that next summer, at the latest, we’ll be able to bring a live performance of our biggest hits to the audience in Estonia. – says Piret. According to her, coronavirus strongly affected their plans. In normal circumstances, we would’ve all recorded the album together in Germany but instead we had to do it remotely from various countries. It was really quite difficult because we were lacking live feedback and sometimes it led to the double amount of work – when it turned out that the recording made in Estonia still wasn’t right. Additionally, I felt we were really missing the possibility to sit in one place together, see each other and discuss the issues.
