JEFF WAYNE'S MUSICAL VERSION OF THE WAR OF THE WORLDS - THE NEW GENERATION
NEW DELUXE DOUBLE ALBUM RELEASED BY SONY MUSIC - NOVEMBER 26TH 2012

“Across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us…”
In 2012, an all New Generation of artistes will guest on a fresh recording of one of the most iconic albums of all time.
Originally released in 1978, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds remains an award-winning landmark masterpiece that has continually won new fans, spending over 330 weeks on the UK chart to date, reaching No. 1 in 11 countries and selling over 15 million copies.
Now, Jeff has embarked on a new interpretation with guest stars every bit as talented as their illustrious predecessors. He has once again brought HG Wells’ classic novel to life as a new deluxe hardback 2CD album, digital download and special double vinyl (its original format) with lavish 52 page booklet and poster.
Two of the modern era's most respected artists, Oscar-nominated actor Liam Neeson and celebrated singer/songwriter/producer Gary Barlow will play the two key roles of The Journalist and The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist.
Gary will be the new voice of the two international hit singles The Eve of The War and Forever Autumn. A life-long fan of the original album, he was most excited at the chance to appear on the new one. He says:
Hot new talent, Alex Clare, following his breakout hit Too Close, takes over as The Voice of Humanity, originally recorded by Chris Thompson.
