[The Fall Of A Rebel Angel album cover] November 11, 2016: Enigma's eighth album is released: The Fall Of A Rebel Angel. The first album since 2008, it "tells the story of a symbolic journey to redemption", with the songs following a "protagonist [who] sets off for development and evolution". The lyrics are written by Michael Kunze, a German lyricist who crossed paths with Michael Cretu also in the early 1980s. As part of the album story are artworks by artist Wolfgang Beltracchi, who painted the cover art as well as a painting for each of the 12 songs. There are several featured vocalists on the album, including Anggun who provides vocals on the album's first single Sadeness (Part II). Deluxe editions of the album contain a second disc with narrations of the story in English, Spanish and French, with music backgrounds. A "super deluxe edition" also includes a signed picture frame and exclusive online content.
