Greta Van Fleet have shared “Heat Above,” the latest preview of their upcoming album The Battle at Garden’s Gate.
The new single comes to life with the shimmering sound of an antique organ before anthemic drums and vocalist John Kiszka’s operatic melodies enter the picture. According to the band, “Heat Above” is a bright, optimistic track asserting that, despite the recent divide surrounding political and social issues, love abundantly exists across the world.
“There’s plenty of love left in this world, even though it may not seem like it,” Greta Van Fleet’s Sam Kiszka said in a statement. “And that’s what ‘Heat Above’ is about, rising to the stars together.”
Greta Van Fleet previously dropped The Battle at Garden’s Gate tracks “My Way, Soon” and “Age of Machine.” The follow-up to their 2018 debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army, the LP was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Greg Kurstin, whose recent credits include Foo Fighters’ latest album Medicine at Midnight.
The Battle at Garden’s Gate will be released on April 16 via Republic Records. Listen to “Heat Above” below:
