The Visitor is the nineteenth studio album by the British hard rock band UFO, which was released on 2 June 2009.[3] It was their first album in three years since the release of The Monkey Puzzle in 2006. Current UFO bassist, Pete Way, was absent from the recording sessions due to a medical condition affecting his liver. Bass parts were recorded by Peter Pichl. Since there are no writing credits on the album booklet, they were posted on UFO's official website (June 2009).
