ARJEN LUCASSEN Enlists Legendary Screen Actor RUTGER HAUER For Upcoming Solo Album

AYREON mastermind Arjen Lucassen has enlisted the talents of legendary screen actor Rutger Hauer as the narrator on Arjen‘s forthcoming solo album.

“This is a dream come true,” says Arjen. “Rutger is not only one of my favorite actors, he also starred in my all-time favorite sci-fi movie, ‘Blade Runner’.”

Rutger also enjoyed the collaboration with Arjen, saying, “[Arjen] connected with me when he was working on his new album. Said he was a big fan and wanted to see if I could do the voiceover. This happened over just a few weeks and it was marvelous work, very creative. I hope you enjoy it”.

A short video clip of Arjen and Rutger talking about their collaboration can be seen below.

Lucassen‘s as-yet-untitled new solo album is scheduled for release later this year via InsideOut Music.
