Volbeat released their first pieces of new music since 2019 in the form of two tracks: “Wait A Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før.”
Embedded below, the two new songs are accompanied by two new lyric videos. According to a press release, Volbeat wrote and recorded these tracks while in lockdown during the pandemic.
In a statement, Volbeat said, “As the weather begins to warm and the days get longer in many parts of the world, we wanted to share two songs that we wrote and recorded over these long, difficult fifteen months that have the vibe and feel of Summer. We’re beyond thankful that even during a lockdown our good friends Doug, Ray and Mia Maja were able to put the pedal to the metal with us on ‘Wait A Minute My Girl,’ and we’re absolutely thrilled that Stine Bramsen, who we’ve known and admired for a long time, was willing to lend her incredible talents to ‘Dagen Før.'”
The band added, “We hope you enjoy this double-barreled blast of Summer tunes as much as we enjoyed creating them, and we can’t wait for you to hear what else we have in store for you. The Fall always brings the thunder and lightning…”
“Wait A Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før” are available for streaming and download here.
