Vanilla Ninja, a girlband extremely popular in their times, announced a return some time ago and informed they were not coming back in the original line-up, with Triinu Kivilaan rejoining Lenna Kuurmaa, Piret Järvis-Milder and Katrin Siska. But why wasn’t Maarja Kivi-Meriste, now living in Los Angeles, invited to join? Long distance can’t be the obstacle taking into consideration that Katrin Siska, for example, lives in Cape Town.
To be absolutely honest, this new album is a surprise also to me, just like the fact that they are working with David Brandes again. – reveals Maarja Kivi in an interview with Sky.ee.
Shortly after Maarja left the band, Vanilla Ninja signed for the new record label, which years later became the doom for the whole band.
It’s funny, how the world runs. But time heals all wounds. Given the fact that I wasn’t involved this time, I wouldn’t expect any cooperation in the nearest future. – said Kivi.
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!”.
To celebrate the New Year, hopefully filled with Vanilla Ninja related news, we decided to share the combination of all the Instagram videos from Vanilla Ninja’s comeback concert that took place on December 19th in Tallinn’s Saku Suurhall. Witness it again and let the spark ignite!
You may ask “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?“. Well – this is not a dream. Or a drill. On December 18th 2019, Vanilla Ninja came back together to give a performance at a Christmas party organized by Sportland Eesti at Estonia’s legendary Saku Suurhall.

Lenna Kuurmaa, who is recently being bombed with questions whether Vanilla Ninja will make a come-back, says that the girl trio’s reunion has not been decided yet. We have been discussing it and thinking it over, that’s true. But nothing has been established yet. Just ideas.
