Lonely Robot, the latest project from producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena), has shared new song “Sigma.” The track is the second single from the group’s upcoming sophomore album The Big Dream, due to be released on April 28th.

Mitchell commented: “‘Sigma is the very last track I recorded for The Big Dream, the nature of which can be summed up with a sadly age old proverb which resonates now more than ever; ‘History will teach us nothing’.”

The Big Dream follows acclaimed 2015 debut Please Come Home and has a concept running through the release. The theme follows The Astronaut, the central character in the Lonely Robot adventure, emerging from a long period in stasis.

Mitchell explains: “The Astronaut wakes up from a cryogenic sleep but finds he’s no longer in space, and is instead in a woodland area surrounded by a group of strange people with animal heads! It’s a little surreal, a little ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to some extent. This is something of a solipsistic haze, for want of a better description!”
