AYREON mastermind Arjen Lucassen recently revealed that the title of the eagerly anticipated forthcoming new album will be The Theory Of Everything, and that it will be a double album.

Aiming for a tentative release at the end of this year, Arjen had this to say about the album's progress: "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 have to create a new one from scratch. I'm really excited about the line-up and how everything is PROGressing so far."

Below is a clip from the recording session with violinist Ben Mathot:

Lucassen also commented further on the new album: "There is physics involved, but mainly it's about human relationships and the emotional costs that come with treading the fine line between genius and madness."
