Rock band Greta Van Fleet releases a new song “Heat Above,” the opening track from their upcoming sophomore album, The Battle At Garden’s Gate, set to release April 16, 2021 on Lava/Republic Records. Pre-orders are available now.
Hot on the heels of their fifth #1 at rock radio, Grammy-winning Greta Van Fleet premiere the epic power ballad, the third track released from their second studio album. Produced by Greg Kurstin (Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Adele) Greta Van Fleet incorporated soaring vocals and Hammond B3.
“There’s plenty of love left in this world, even though it may not seem like it,” said Sam Kiska, bass, keys for GVF. “And that’s what ‘Heat Above’ is about, rising stars together.”
The band first debuted the song in an interview with Zane Lowe on ‘The Sane Lowe Show” on Apple Music 1 where they discussed what it was like to work with a new producer, the personal growth they’ve seen over the last three years and where in the world they’ve been in the extended downtime away from touring. In addition, they are the featured artist on New Music Daily on Apple Music today.
The band’s upcoming album, The Battle at Garden’s Gate is a reflection of their journey into the present. With string orchestras, explorative songs, and the band’s building a visual story with every track, it has an elevated elegance unseen yet from the young band. It explores the boundaries of the group’s artistry, with physical copies of the record, featuring a stunning 16-page booklet full of mythical, transcende4nt visuals and metaphysical symbols for each track.
