Evergrey have released a video for their new single In Orbit.

It features on the Swedish outfit’s 10th album The Storm Within, which launched in September. The track features Nightwish singer Floor Jansen – who also appears in the promo. Watch it below.

Evergrey vocalist Tom S Englund tells Loudwire: “Floor is a personal friend and a major Evergrey fan, so it was discussed over a glass of wine between her and my wife Carina, who asked her if she wanted to do the song.”

Speaking of the concept behind the follow-up to 2014’s Hymns For The Broken, Englund said: “As usual, the lyrics are based on someone or some event in my life. When we were making this album a lot of these relationship issues were going on around me – people losing a partner or a loved one and grieving.

The Storm Within is about a search for identity, trying to make yourself full when you feel half empty, and I placed that storyline in an interstellar world.”

Evergrey are currently on tour across Europe in support of the album.
