Guitarist Christofer Johnsson reports that "pre-production of the new album is going well" and offered the following information about his time in the studio:

"Work = all the time; Sleep = never. THERION never give out any info like titles of songs on future releases before it's 100% finished. None [of the tracks] in particular feel difficult and they're all extremely enjoyable. The one with the working title 'Egypt' is one of the mosst enjoyable ones, but of course you won't know what song that is [until] the album finally goes public. A new electronic device I've picked up recently: a D.W. Fearn microphone amplifier." When asked about obtaining the Limited Edition George Lucas Stormtrooper action figure, Johnsson responded, "I think I can survive without that one."
