Estonian superstar Tanel Padar has released his latest single, Varjudes, which translates into English as In The Shadows. This is Padar’s first release since his single Sinu Aeg in 2020, which he performed as part of the interval act during Eesti Laul 2020. 

Tanel Padar steps back into his rock’n’roll shoes with his newest track, and it’s definitely safe to say this style suits him…a lot! This is what Tanel had to say about going back to his roots in rock music.

"I began to consciously seek contact with my old love of rock music. Playing a pill at home, I noticed how, in my little girl, the old role riffs worked a hundred times better than some."

In the interview with ERR, Padar also explained that he appreciates playing live and his fans more than ever amid the pandemic that has halted live concerts and gigging accross the globe.

"I can certainly appreciate both more now. Sometimes it takes a bitter time in life to be able to once again value your loved ones, your work and, of course, your fans. I will do everything i can to make up for lost time‎."
