Europe release video for title track of new upcoming album ‘Walk The Earth’
Swedish hard rockers Europe have released a video for the title track from their new upcoming studio album Walk The Earth, which will be released on October 20, 2017. The video was premiered on Billboard today.
The following is an excerpt from the article / interview with Europe‘s frontman Joey Tempest by Billboard:
Walk The Earth, Europe‘s 11th studio album overall, comes out Oct. 20 and is the follow-up to 2015’s War Of Kings. It found the quintet working again with producer Dave Cobb — who “acts like a sixth member of the band,” according to Tempest — and recording at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London. “Everyone got excited; Even Dave and his engineer were like, ‘We’ll come over from Nashville and do it in London!,’ Tempest recalls. “In Abbey Road we knew they had all the old gear, the stuff Pink Floyd used and the Beatles, but at the same time they’re cutting edge, so it was marrying two worlds, the vintage feel with modern punch, which is what we wanted to do. It was a very intense two weeks.”
The resulting 10-track set, according to Tempest, is “very much classic rock. It’s warm. It’s flowing. You’ve got some more peaks. It’s more striking. When we started the record I listened to a lot of prog music. In my iPhone I have the whole Rush catalog, old Yes or (Jethro) Tull, Opeth, Porcupine Tree. I think it’s an interesting record. Probably more extraordinary than War Of Kings.”
