Due to the leak of the new Nightwish single, "Eva", via an as-yet-undisclosed source in the United Kingdom, Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish will begin selling the Internet-only single "Eva" and reveal the name of the new singer earlier than was previously planned.

"Eva" will be released in Finland via NetAnttila on Friday, May 25. "Eva" will receive a Finnish radio premiere on Radio Rock and YleX Friday morning at 7:00 a.m.

The identity of the new Nightwish singer will be revealed on Thursday, May 24 at 5:00 p.m. Finnish time. First the news will appear on and soon after Spinefarm Records will send a bulletin to all media.

The band is carefully guarding her identity. However, according to some rumors and from the short audio sample, the new vocalist is none other than former Tristania frontwoman Vibeke Stene.

There are a number of signs pointing to the fact that Vibeke is Tarja's replacement in Nightwish. For example, Vibeke quit Tristania last month "due to personal reasons," making the timing of her departure perfect if she were to join Nightwish.
