Hanna Pakarinen released Synnyin, elän, kuolen in September. It's her seventh studio album, third in Finnish and the very first cover album. All the songs are namely previously recorded by legendary late Carola (Standertskjöld), one of the biggest talents Finnish music industry has had.

Vesa-Matti Loiri releases an album that he says will be his last. And it's a very special one, featuring sacret texts from various religions, put into music for the first time by Timo Kiiskinen. The album was in the making for three years and cancelled by Loiri himself a few times. In the end 20 songs were recorded in 10 days in Iceland. He says the only religion he believes in is the law of Karma, but the album has texts from the Bible, Kabbalah, hinduism and Kalevala among others. "In the end they all tell the same story" he says. Along with the CD also a book was released.
He's one of the top selling Finnish artists having released 11 albums in the 2000's and sold over 660.000. He has released 34 studio albums since 1971 He has acted in over 70 films, theater and television, and is one of the most famous comedians.
The song above is based on texts from ancient Egyptian The Book of the Dead!
