Flyleaf, ‘New Horizons’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
Flyleaf are gearing up to release their new album, ‘New Horizons,’ and Loudwire is proud to exclusively premiere the disc’s title track, which also serves as the album’s first single.
‘New Horizons’ is the band’s third album and follow-up to 2009′s ‘Memento Mori.’
On the title track, singer Lacey Strum’s voice takes center stage, with a big assist from the twin guitar assault of Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann.
Lyrically, the song takes an uplifting tone right from the opening line, “So you’re tired but you’re alive / So open up your eyes / And you can your sleep when you are dead.”
Bassist Pat Seals describes the tune as follows: “‘New Horizons’ expresses a feeling of looking toward the unknown future with hope. Definitely one of our best and most joyful songs – I am excited to see how our fans will receive it.”
Flyleaf’s album ‘New Horizons’ is set to arrive in the fall, with the title track hitting iTunes on Aug. 21. In the meantime, take a listen to the title track below:
