"Tarantula" is the sixth studio-album by Spaniard popstar Mónica Naranjo. It was released on April 22 2008 in Spain after the release of the debut-single "Europa", which have reached #1 on the Spanish Singles Chart for 6 consecutive weeks.

This album is Monica's first album in seven years due to personal reasons, despite that her label, Sony-BMG, released in 2005 "Colección Privada", a greatest hits collection from her eleven years in the music industry.

The album was produced by Union of Knives, Chris Gordon and Dave McClean, and it was recorded between London, Glasgow, New York and Barcelona, between 2005 until 2008.

The album has been released two days later in Latin America, and it's expecting to be released in Europe, as previous albums got a release there. It's unknown if the album is going to be released in the United States.

History

"Tarantula" is the product of 5 years, Mónica says the title of the album is due to the fact the body of work was born out of the poison, and that the album is a logical follow up to her 1999 album Minage(given that her record company after Minage wanted albums more along the lines of previous work Palabra De Mujer and pressured her to come up with 2001's very commercial oriented Chicas Malas). "Tarantula" has a similar lyrical complexity as Minage but goes further in experimenting with sounds of electronica, heavy guitars riffs, and the use of classical accents throughout the album as well as new vocal experiments (colours/tones of voice as Mónica called it once in reality show "Operación Triunfo") and the use of foreign languages in certain songs. Mónica said "Tarantula" is based on freedom of expression, being able to portray what she sees everyday in life. Naranjo said that Carlos López, Sony BMG president in Spain, was convinced by the album only hearing the first single Europa. Mónica revealed in an interview that he said to her "if everything in this álbum is as awesome as this, I have no need to hear it all'. he listened to the whole body of work only a few weeks prior to its release, and Naranjo reported that he is fascinated with it. Mónica said that after years of silence she is tired of being afraid, and that she's very greateful to López for being the only person who's truly helped her in the industry. Mónica affirms that her next album may very well be again in a decade if needed be. she doesn't believe in rushing records just to sell them as her integrity as an artist is much more important to her, she stated that albums should be carefully crafted and that they should be given love and time and to know what's the direction of the album. Mónica feels that the 5 years invested were worth it and that she's very satisfied with the fine work that "Tarantula" is. She admits to being very aware that the album has a dark tone, but also a magical touch at the same time that captures you and enraptures you bringing you to a journey to another world. with this album she said that reality will be a key ingredient and not just empty words often used like "I love you, I love you." 40 Songs were composed for "Tarantula", 11 making the final cut. Once The songs were finished they were tied together with interludes, helping the listener be captured seamlessly in "Tarantula"'s world, without a second of silence. Monica states that the album cover has the same intent as the album. she said "it's as if you enter a circus tent and you find a woman that you don't know if she's half human, half animal."
