Tobias Sammet Teams up with Floor Jansen (Nightwish) for new AVANTASIA single

Tobias Sammet’s epic metal project Avantasia has released their new single, “Misplaced Among The Angels.” The song features a guest appearance by NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen.

The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album “A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society”, which is set to be released on October 21. This will be the ninth album from the project and the follow-up to “Moonglow” which was released in 2019.

You can watch the lyric video for Misplaced Among The Angels” below.

There are still some special voices and artists left that I wanted to work with, one of them being Nightwish singer and frontwoman Floor Jansen.

Misplaced Among The Angels‘ was already finished when I asked Floor to contribute to the song. She said she could imagine singing it, although she wasn’t 100% sure in the beginning if the lower range passages would suit her rather higher range singing style. But without further ado, she gave it a shot and she delivered unbelievably.

I personally think that ‘Misplaced Among The Angels’, complete with Floor’s strong voice, is one of the best ballads of my entire career.
