Seven years after leaving Power Metal giants Kamelot, Roy Khan releases his first song as a solo artist. A lot of speculations took place throughout the years about what happened to Roy Khan after leaving Kamelot (read full report here). We then raised the question: Is KAMELOT’s Former Singer ROY KHAN Preparing His Comeback? And our question was answered a year and few months later >here<.

 

Today is the day, and the definite answer to our question has been answered. Roy Khan started his personal YouTube channel today and released his first ever song since 2010. “For All” is the song with which Khan chose to introduce himself as a solo artist to the world. Composed and written by Roy Khan himself, the song is a piano ballad performed by Khan on piano and keys, Leif Johansen on fretless bass and GOA on all guitars. The song is filled with Khan’s signature vocals that we’ve been used to during his Kamelot days. (Listen Below)

The song is set to be released on April 1st, leading to speculating that it’s going to be an April’s Fool joke. We searched for the lyrics and Shazamed the music but no result so far. One thing for sure is that this is Roy’s voice, but we will have to wait and see tomorrow if anything comes up!

Roy Khan Releases First Song After Leaving Kamelot

Lyrics

for all the things I wanted to become
and all the things I could have been
for waiting for the writing on the wall
so long
for all the things I had and lost again
for every time I failed to lift your name
in the night

lord almighty
come pour your mercy down on me
holy glory
for all

for all the things I wanted in my own name
and all the filth my eyes have seen
for hiding when I ought be walking thru
for everything you wanted me to be
for all the love you pray that I may see
in you

God of David
I want to lower my defenses
pour your mercy down on me
for all

God almighty
it wasn’t you who wanted war
but you won it
for all
for now and ever more
cause you won it over
once
and once
for all

Roy Khan – vocals, piano and keys
Leif Johansen – fretless bass
GOA – all guitars

Recorded at Stable Studios in Oslo March 2018
