ALT is the twelfth studio album by English progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator. It was released 25 June 2012. There are only instrumental songs on the album. The opening track "Earlybird" has inspired the Earlybird Project (2014-2015), a non-profit environmental art project, an appeal for the preservation of the planet. This project is the result of the collaboration between the Italian-Russian artist Vladislav Shabalin, who works with fossils, and Van der Graaf Generator.

Only for completionists (24%). ALT" is the latest Van der Graaf Generator album that features original members Peter Hammill on guitar and keyboards, Hugh Banton on organ, bass pedals and bass guitar, and drums by Guy Evans. Normally I would be salivating over a new VDGG release as I am a huge fan of their inimitable sound, however this album was not on my number one hit list for a number of reasons.
