The standard edition of “Clockwork Angels: The Novel” will be published September 1.

"For more than twenty years, Neil and I have wanted to collaborate on something MAJOR, a way we could tie together our imaginations, and at last that's happening,” said Anderson when the project was announced.

"I'm writing the novelization of Rush's album, 'Clockwork Angels', their first new CD in five years,” he continued. “Imagine if someone had written the novel of 'The Wall', 'Tommy', or 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' when those classic albums were released. For Rush fans, 'Clockwork Angels' is that project.”

Rush will introduce “Clockwork Angels” to fans when they kick off their North American Tour in Manchester, NH. on September 7.
