Changes is the third album by Swedish AOR/rock band Alyson Avenue with new vocalist Arabella Vitanc. Alyson Avenue released their third album "Changes" through Avenue of Allies. The record was co-produced by band members and Chris Laney (Crazy Lixx, H.E.A.T., Brian Robertson) and includes guest appearances by Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish, Ex-Alyson Avenue), Michael Bormann (Ex-Jaded Heart, Charade, BISS), Rob Marcello (Danger Danger, Marcello - Vestry), Fredrik Bergh, (Street Talk, Bloodbound), Tommy Stråhle and Mike Andersson (Cloudscape, Planet Alliance).

Background and reception[edit]

Over six years since Alyson Avenue released their second album, the band was able to re-emerge with a new sound and vocalist. After Anette Olzon left after becoming the new singer for Nightwish, Alyson Avenue had been searching for a new vocalist since 2007, until they announced Swedish singer Arabella Vitanc two years later.

Critics[who?] gives Changes positive reviews for this album, for background vocals, rhythmic guitars, and its bombastic sound.[citation needed]
