Europe currently working on new song & aiming to release new studio album in late 2024 / early 2025
Swedish rockers Europe consisting of lead vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, drummer Ian Haughland, bassist John Leven and keyboardist Mic Michaeli are currently working on a new song titled “Hold Your Head Up” that will be released on September 15, 2023 and that will presumably be on their next studio album slated for release in late 2024 / early 2025. Europe‘s last studio album Walk The Earth dates back to October 2017.
The following message was posted on Europe‘s Facebook page earlier today:
Just got some great news we want to share with you all!
We are currently in Atlantis Studios in Stockholm with producer Klas Åhlund (Ghost, Robyn) working on a new song entitled “HOLD YOUR HEAD UP”, a punchy up tempo rocker with reminiscent elements of early Europe, which will be released as a single on September 15th this year.
The song will be mixed by Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Def Leppard) who also mixed Europe’s Secret Society album.
The song is a pre-curser to recording a new album in 2024, the bands 12th studio record. Set for release late 2024 / early 2025.
In addition, we are finishing up work on a brand new documentary film with producer / director Craig Hooper (Deep Purple / Saxon) for Coolhead Productions with the working title EUROPE – THE MOVIE. The film will tell the story of the band, from formation until present day, telling of our rise to success in the mid 80’s, through hard times and heartache to coming back in the millennium and the current successes we have achieved. This is set for release in early 2024.
We will update you on more news when we have it.
