Floor Jansen, lead singer of the symphonic metal band NIGHTWISH, has released a new solo single, “Invincible”
Taken from Floor’s debut solo album “Paragon” and originally written specifically for the Invictus Games, this uplifting anthem takes on the important topic of PTSD and its effects on not just veterans, but all of us. With one in 13 people affected by PTSD in their lifetime, and women being twice as likely to develop it as men, this is a song that will resonate with many.
But “Invincible” is more than just a song about a difficult topic. It’s a message of hope, of strength, and of resilience. The lyrics, “Out in the rain / Stronger now / Stronger than all of the pain / Broken but beautiful” are a powerful reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always the possibility of coming out stronger. The song encourages the listener to “Master the pain / The cradle of your story / Changed by disdain / Starting life once more” and to find healing and self-discovery.
In addition to the powerful message of hope and resilience in “Invincible“, it is also deeply personal for Jansen. The singer has witnessed the effects of PTSD in her close circle and has seen first-hand the struggles that it can cause in one’s life.
Jansen is a powerful voice in the music industry and her own personal experience with PTSD gives her a unique perspective on the topic, one that is both understanding and empathetic. “Invincible” is not only a powerful anthem but also a testimony of Floor’s sensitivity, humility, and willingness to share a personal side of her life, making her a relatable artist. An example of this is Floor’s recent struggle with breast cancer.
This song is a way for her to reach out to others who may be struggling and offer them a message of hope and encouragement. Through “Invincible“, she hopes to remind others that they are not alone, and that no matter how difficult the journey may be, there is always the possibility of coming out stronger.
“Paragon” will arrive on March 24. The LP showcases the Dutch-born singer’s impressive vocal range and powerful voice on a diverse collection of pop-infused tracks and emotional ballads influenced by the sounds of her career.

One that even defines me, where I am on my path. I have reached my PARAGON! I am so proud of this work! And grateful for all the amazing people in this beautiful life that helped me get here!”
