Tuomas has confirmed with us that both Pip Williams and Troy Donockley will be featured on his solo album in 2013. Tuomas said that "We absolutely need pipes on it, because Mr Scrooge is from Scotland. So of course that means Troy wlil be on there." He then later mentioned the use of orchestral sections and that Mr Williams had confirmed to be happy to work on the project.
Tuomas expects to start writing the new album in early Spring and record in Summer of 2013.
