Arjen Lucassen has confirmed his next Ayreon record will be called The Theory Of Everything – and it’ll be a double album.
The long-awaited follow-up to 2008′s 01011001 is pencilled in for release towards the end of the year.
Lucassen says: “I’ve finished recording demos of the music, I’m now about half-way finished with the lyrics. It’s going to be a double album, so there is a lot to write.
“It’s extra challenging as well, because lyrically I’ve left the old Ayreon universe behind, and I have to create a new one from scratch. I’m really excited about the line-up and how everything is progressing so far.”
He’s promised to update fans in due course.
