Somewhere Out in Space is an album by Germanpower metal band, Gamma Ray. It was released on August 25, 1997 and is the band's fifth studio album. Continuing in the tradition of the previous four albums, it contained yet another different lineup, but would also be the first album to feature the band's longest standing lineup. The album featured Dirk Schlächter on bass for the first time since his guest appearance on Heading for Tomorrow, Henjo Richter on guitar and Dan Zimmerman on drums.
The track "No Stranger (Another Day In Life)" was originally written as a contribution to Michael Kiskes solo album, but since Kiske rejected it as "too heavy" Hansen instead decided to record it with Gamma Ray.
"Miracle" is effectively a stylized version of "Man On a Mission" from "Land of the Free", Gamma Ray's previous album. It has very similar lyrics, an identical chorus, and similar chord progressions, but at a slower tempo.
