Anneke van Giersbergen has spoken about how she and Periphery guitarist Mark Holcomb came together to write the Vuur track Freedom - Rio.
The song features on the new album In This Moment We Are Free - Cities which was released last month via InsideOut Music.
And in a new video, van Giersbergen gives fans an insight into the workings of the track.
She says: “Mark and I met at the Progressive Nation At Sea cruise a couple of years ago on the last evening. We became really good friends and stayed in touch and at one point I asked him, ‘Do you want to write with me for the new album?’ He said yes, so he came up with this awesome music.”
Van Giersbergen says she especially likes the mid-section of the track and adds: “It’s very intricate but smooth at the same time.”
Earlier this month, Vuur announced that they’d tour across the UK and Europe throughout February next year.
