Babymetal have released a brand new single, PA PA YA!!

The track, which features a guest appearance from Thai rapper F.Hero, is expected to appear on the Japanese band’s as-yet-untitled third album, out later this year.

Babymetal appear at this weekend’s Glastonbury festival. They play the Other Stage on Sunday June 30.

The duo will also perform a headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on July 2, where they’ll be joined by special guests Amaranthe and Sleep Token.

They play their first US arena show at The Forum in Los Angeles on October 11 as part of a full US tour.

When Babymetal revealed news about the new album in March, the accompanying promo shot only showed Su-metal and Moametal, suggesting that they’ve decided not to replace Yuimetal, who left Babymetal in October last year.

On the same day that Yuimetal, aka Yui Mizuno released a statement about her departure, Babymetal released the single Starlight, and announced it was the start of a new beginning for the band. A second single, Elevator Girl, followed in May 2019.
