Saksalainen heavy metal -veteraani Helloween julkaisee uuden singlen ”Skyfall” 2. huhtikuuta 2021. 12-minuuttinen kappale ennakoi yhtyeen odotettua albumia, joka ilmestyy kesällä 2021. Singlestä ja tulevasta albumista kerrotaan:
”The epic 12 minute track “Skyfall”, written by Kai Hansen, has the long yearned ‚Keeper-Vibe’, but isn’t musically telling the whole story of the album – this has a musical arch being loved by fans of every era: from unforgettable times to glorious newer adventures all the way to the upcoming first album of the Helloween new age. “Skyfall” tells about an alien landing on earth and a dramatic chase, while Hansen, Kiske and Deris duel with each other in a breathtaking manner and create a broadband adventure – including a lyric sheet with colored blocks identifying the singers as well as a video that is formidable. Produced by Martin Häusler, it will be the most elaborate clip in the history of the band, the story to be shown with 3-D animation and having a cinematic look – in these times almost a dinosaur in implementation!
The very first release of the new era proves to be worthy of the occasion: Just like a full album release, different formats, curated and treasured with love and affection will be available – especially for all collectors and super fans: Premium CD as digipak and 12“ Gatefold vinyl in various styles like shape-LP and picture disc – black or in combinations orange/transparent, orange/black, green/black marbled, orange/black splatter and red/black splatter.
The base of the upcoming milestone album was already erected in the studio: using the original Ingo Schwichtenberg drum kit, the recording was done with the same modulators at the Hamburg HOME studios where back then »Master Of The Rings«, »The Time Of The Oath« and »Better Than Raw« were recorded. Back to the roots and completely analog is the UNITED impact – another great work by long time producer Charlie Bauerfeind and co-producer Dennis Ward before the album traveled to New York and got the final mix in the Valhalla Studios of Ronald Prent.”
