Vorige week berichtten we nog over de albumtrailer van Moonglow, het komende album van Avantasia. Deze week heeft Tobias Sammet wat meer nieuws prijsgegeven over het album dat op 15 februari 2019 uitgebracht zal worden, onder meer door een lyricvideo van de single The Raven Child online te zetten.

Tobias Sammet:
“I really can’t wait to unleash »Moonglow«. First reactions by press and friends are the most enthusiastic comments I have ever gotten in my whole career of 27 years. No bullshit, it’s the truth, Sascha and I are overwhelmed!
In order to avoid boredom, in the middle of promotion and tour preparations I was getting myself involved in every detail of the album sleeves, booklets and packaging, to make sure the album drags the listener into a different world.
I wanted »Moonglow« to be an overall experience for escapists like myself.
My favourite edition is the giant super strictly limited art book edition with bonus track and a bonus CD. A massive coffee table book with photos, interview, liner notes and illustrations of Victorian painter Grimshaw who has been very inspirational to me. This book edition is everything it takes to invite the listener into the world of »Moonglow« and its productional process.
There is also a smaller digibook version that features one bonus track and that is limited and beautiful as well. And of course there are also vinyl editions to hug, feel, watch, smell and caress.
I am extremely proud of all these little treasures and can’t wait to unleash them!”

Moonglow zal bestaan uit elf nieuwe composities waaraan diverse gastzangers hun medewerking hebben verleend. In het elf minuten durende The Raven Child wordt Tobias vocaal bijgestaan door Hansi Kürsch en Jørn Lande.
