Piret for Eesti Päevaleht

2 weeks ago, Estonian newspaper Eesti Päevaleht published a long interview with Piret Järvis-Milder. The conversation touched many interesting subjects, including Vanilla Ninja’s comeback.

Who came up with the idea that Vanilla Ninja should reunite again?
It may have been the end of 2018, when our former producer, David Brandes, called Lenna and asked whether we might have been interested in making a new album. Then, in January 2019, together with Lenna we flew to Germany, discussed the matter, sang in the first demos and decided to go on with it!

Did you also consider the option of Maarja’s return to the band?
Not really, because Maarja lives in America now and it would have been too difficult to form the band over such a long distance.

How much power has gone into Vanilla Ninja’s comeback?
The pace is now slower for a while, but there are some busy times behind us. We have been preparing and recording the new material since 2019, and now, there are 14 new songs ready. They are going to be released on our comeback album “Encore” on October 8th. This year we have already met twice for video shoots – once in Estonia and once in Berlin. At the end of June our first single in 13 years, “Gotta Get It Right”, was finally released. A lot of work has been done, and now we have reached the phase where we have to let the world know we are back. Since I have a child under the age of one at home, I have been doing a lot of preparations late in the evening and at night, when the baby is asleep and I have the first few hours in a day to be on my own. So some lyrics were born at night, and sometimes I had to practice playing an instrument at night and so on.

What brought Vanilla Ninja back together?

At the end of 2018, a former Vanilla Ninja producer David Brandes contacted Lenna, one of the original band members, and came forward with an initial plan for the ninja-girls’ reunion.
After the producer had come up with the plan, Lenna and Piret flew to Germany together to discuss the matter and an agreement was quickly reached. We sang the first demos and decided to go on with it. – said Piret in an interview with Eesti Päevaleht.

Piret about Vanilla Ninja’s comeback

Last week, former Vanilla Ninja members revealed on their social media that they were going to reunite and release a new album next year.
Actually, I guess you could say that the new Vanilla Ninja will sound like the old Vanilla Ninja. We don’t want to shock anybody, so I think those people, that liked Vanilla Ninja’s music 15 years ago, will be happy, because the sound remains quite the same. What I really like is that we are not going to try out a new, modern sound image, but stick to our roots. – said Piret Järvis-Milder in Raadio 2’s morning show “Hommikus!”.
