Retelling the story of ‘The War of the Worlds’, this concept album follows on from Jeff Wayne’s 1978 classic. Recreating the score for the next generation, the album features the vocals of Liam Neeson, Gary Barlow, Maverick Sabre and Joss Stone.

Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds – The New Generation is a 2012 concept album by Jeff Wayne and is a re-imagining of his 1978 concept album, retelling the story of the 1898 novel The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. As previously, the music format is predominantly progressive rock and string orchestra, but with synthesizers playing a more prominent role. The music is intermixed with re-voiced narration and leitmotifs to carry the story forward via rhyming melodic lyrics that express the feelings of the various characters. Due to the consistent popularity of the original album, Wayne decided to return to his score and re-create it for a new generation of audiences, as well as re-launch a live tour throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.
