At the same time, the pair have announced that they will release a new single, a cover of Depeche Mode's hit World In My Eyes through earMusic on March 25. The new single features Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid, and is the latest in a run of planned single releases that feature a host of guitarists such as Marillion's Steve RotheryTrevor RabinAl Di MeolaMike Oldfield and Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (Sons Of Apollo).

The idea behind Outlanders was "to create something exciting and new: Outlanders combine chilled but exciting electronic beats with Tarja’s emotional, classically trained vocal skills and unique guitar performances. These three elements are a constant in all the songs and are equally important."

The Outlanders project has been a long time coming to fruition, having been recorded and mixed mainly on the Caribbean island of Antigua during the last 10 years.

Outlanders have previously released a video for Closer To The Sky.
