The Mission is the upcoming sixteenth studio album by American rock band Styx. It is the follow-up to the band's 2005 album Big Bang Theory, and is their first studio album of all original material since 2003's Cyclorama. It is a concept album taking place in the year 2033 and revolves around the first manned mission to Mars. The album features the lineup of Tommy Shaw, James "JY" Young, Lawrence Gowan, Chuck Panozzo, Todd Sucherman, and Ricky Phillips. The former three will play the roles of the Pilot, First Officer, and the Engineer, whilst the latter three will play the ship's crew. The album was produced by Will Evankovich.
Don't hate this album because it has been beautifully marketed, for if you do you'll miss out on something extraordinary. Italian mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli reportedly worked on it for three years, even suggesting a mystery-novel tie-in, and her label, Decca, kept the contents under wraps until the album's release, dropping hints via Internet videos. When the album appeared, it was issued in a limited-edition hardbound package including numerous essays covering aspects of the life of the composer involved, Agostino Steffani.
