With not long to go until the new AYREON album The Theory Of Everything is released in the U.S. on October 29, 2013, the time has come for a full extract of music to be revealed.
Arjen had this to say: “This is an extract from the 20-plus minute track, “Phase 1: Singularity.” It combines The Theory of Everything parts 1 and 2. It features vocals by Michael Mills as the Father and Cristina Scabbia as the Mother. The piano was played by Rick Wakeman. Turn on Youtube captions to see the lyrics. Hope you’ll enjoy it!”
