Traveller is the eighth studio album by Norwegian singer Jørn Lande's solo band JORN.

The album was released on June 14, 2013 in Europe and June 11, 2013 in North America. It is characterized by its heavy yet melodic sound. The album lyrics primarily center around the themes of life and death.[2]

Former guitarist Tore Moren and bassist Nic Angileri left the band after the previous album, Bring Heavy Rock to the Land, to pursue solo careers.[3] The new line-up for Traveller includes Wig Wam guitarist Trond Holter and bassist Bernt Jansen.

A video clip for the title track "Traveller" featuring the new members of JORN was released on May 28, 2013[4] and a follow-up video for "Cancer Demon" was released five weeks later [5]

Traveller is the only album featuring bassist Bernt Jansen and the last to feature guitarist Jimmy Iversen and Jorn longtime drummer and partner Willy Bendiksen, who left the band on November 4, 2013.[6]
