Dutch metal group Within Temptation have dropped “Firelight,” the third single from the band’s upcoming seventh studio album, Resist.
The track is armed with anthemic elements and evocative melodies indicative of the group’s futuristic direction on this new record. Belgian singer Jasper Steverlinck lends his chops to the tracks as well, adding a different dimension to complement lead singer Sharon den Adel’s impeccable range.
“[‘Firelight’] was originally written for my solo project, My Indigo, but the track felt too dark back then,” den Adel said in a statement. “It’s still one of my favorite songs, even more [so with] Jasper singing [on] it with me. I think he’s one of the best alternative rock singers in the world. He’s Belgium’s best-kept secret!”
Resist is out December 14. Listen to “Firelight” here:
