2017's retrospective Hit & Pieces saw him return to the top ten of the album charts, and it was followed by Shadows and Reflections, which became the highest charting solo album of his career so far.
Almond's fervent voice powers a dramatic collision of apocalyptic and festive imagery, with soulful vocal harmonies, flute courtesy of Jethro Tull legend Ian Anderson and a searing guitar solo part of a characteristically larger-than-life anthem.
"It's probably fair to say that I wrote 'Lord of Misrule' with Ian in mind as I've always thought there was a touch of pagan mischief about him.
"It's a kind of alternative Christmas song."
The new album was made in collaboration with producer, songwriter and pianist Chris Braide, who also worked on The Velvet Trail.
The duo started writing for the album three years ago, their initial plan for a prog rock album evolving into something leaning more towards strident pop melodies.
Chaos And A Dancing Star provides another twist in the unorthodox artistry that's become a hallmark of Almond's career.
The title plays on a quote from Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra: "One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star."
Essentially, art, music and creative expression comes from personal experiences of repression or turmoil.
It's a statement that has informed everything that Almond crafts, and one that he wants placed on his gravestone.
"I wanted to write romantic apocalyptic love songs and set the songs in the fatal end of days settings with a touch of mystic paganism yet hopelessness," says Marc.
"It reflects the out-of-kilter world in which we find ourselves living today. Crows are a symbolic recurring theme on this record.
"When their eyes turn blue their life is coming to an end.
"Maybe it is the end of days for all of us, and perhaps this is something we should acknowledge."
