"Symphonic" is not the next proper new album from Ex-Masterplan vocalist Jørn Lande, but rather a selection of tracks taken from the vocal icon's previous studio releases, which have been remixed in order to add a grandiose classical orchestra arrangement to the existing hard rock structure. The album is scheduled for release via Frontiers Records on January 22, 2013 (North America) and January 25, 2013 (EU).

Lande commented: "I didn't want to choose the most obvious Jorn songs, as I didn't want this album to come out as a typical 'best of' release. Some songs that are not too typical in a Jørn context, were chosen simply because some great songs often tend to be forgotten and therefore deserve a second chance."

Tracks like “I Came to Rock”, “Burn Your Flame” and “Behind the Clown” are presented in a very intriguing and different new dressing, which enhances the variety and depth of Jørn’s classic songwriting and performance style. In Jorn’s words: "'I Came To Rock,' might now even remind the listener of a Broadway musical, not coming from a heavy rock band like Jørn. The new version of 'Behind The Clown' shows how much as a young boy I have been fascinated by Kate Bush. 'Burn Your Flame' instead came out really fresh and different, compared to the original version on 'Spirit Black' from 2009."

"Symphonic" will also includes an unreleased cover version of Dio’s "Rock 'n' Roll Children." "I hope you will enjoy the album and maybe you will even rediscover some songs you had forgotten…," concludes Jorn.

The track listing for "Symphonic" is:

1. I Came To Rock
2. Rock 'n' Roll Children (Dio Cover)
3. The World I See
4. Burn Your Flame
5. Man Of The Dark
6. My Road
7. Time To Be King
8. Black Morning
9. Like Stone In Water
10. Vision Eyes
11. War Of The World
12. Behind The Clown
13. A Thousand Cuts
14. The Mob Rules (Black Sabbath Cover)
