Listen to the new Ayreon single “The Human Equation” featuring Simone Simons in the role of Angel Of Death, and Marcela Bovio with Caroline Westendorp in the role of The Furies. Watch the lyric video below.
The record focuses on a new story that’s not connected to the Ayreon universe and fuses a sci-fi theme with a gothic ghost story, partially set in the 19th century starring lead characters Abby and Daniel. The story is narrated by Tom Baker known from popular British TV series Doctor Who. The album features Oceans Of Slumber’s Cammie Gilbert, Epica’s Simone Simons, Trillium’s Amanda Somerville, MaYaN’s Marcela Bovio, Caroline Westendorp (ex-The Charm The Fury), Ex-Libris’ Dianne van Giersbergen and others on vocal duties. “Transitus” comes out on September 25.
Arjen Lucassen on the latest single “The Human Equation”: “Here is the 3rd groovy lyric video from the new Ayreon album Transitus, highlighting the lovely Simone Simons as the ruthless but deceptively cute Angel of Death in Transitus. I also love the priceless introduction by our favorite doctor, Tom Baker. And yes Ayreonauts… there are several clues to the intricate Ayreon mythology, besides the obvious reference in the title: THIS HUMAN EQUATION!”
