Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon) wird das neue Star One Album mit dem Titel Revel In Time am 18. Februar 2022 auf InsideOutMusic veröffentlichen. Revel In Time kann ab sofort vorbestellt werden, zusammen mit den Re-Issues von „Victims of the Modern Age“ und „Space Metal“.


Heute freut sich Arjen, die neue Single und das Video zum Titeltrack mit Brandon Yeagley und Adrian Vandenberg zu veröffentlichen.

Arjen has this to say about the video:

“Dear friends, you better hold on tight for this absolutely zany clip… here is the 4th single: ‘Revel In Time’! It’s based on the equally zany movie ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’. It was filmed in Holland and the U.S. and of course… in outer space.

This is definitely the most varied Star One album so far. After the epic ‘Lost Children of the Universe’, the fast and furious ‘Fate of Man’, the complex and proggy ‘Prescient’ we now have this deliriously wild ride for you with ‘Revel In Time’. I sure hope you have a sense of humor, ha ha!

I hope you will enjoy this Amazing Flight in Time and Space. Thanks for your support as always, looking forward to reading your comments.

Be excellent to each other!

Arjen explains the decision to return with a new Star One album:
“Ayreon is like the mothership for all my music. It contains all the different musical styles that I like to listen to and that I love to create. But I’m always looking for challenges and trying to create something new and original as well. Working within a set of constraints forces you to do that, so sometimes I like to limit myself and focus on just one style. For example, with Star One I focus on the metal-side of Ayreon. That means you won’t hear the exuberantly liberal use of acoustic instruments that are so often featured on Ayreon albums, like violin, woodwinds, cello, horns, dulcimer, mandolin, etc.”
