The Flower Kings (opens in new tab) have released a stream of their new single Wicked Old Symphony.
It’s the latest song taken from the band’s upcoming studio album Waiting For Miracles, which will launch on November 8 through InsideOut Music.
The 15 tracks were recorded over the summer at RMV studio in Stockholm, Sweden – the vintage studio owned by ABBA’s Benny Andersson.
Vocalist and guitarist Roine Stolt said: “We have gone back to the joyful and playful style that made the band famous in the late 90s. So here ‘more’ is always ‘more’!
“At time the lyrics have a bit of a serious concern about the state of our world, but overall the theme is full of joy and colour.”
Stolt is joined in the lineup by Jonas Reingold, Hasse Fröberg, Zach Kamins and Mirko DeMaio, who are said to have created “an adventurous collection of pure prog-rock” with “boat-loads of vintage keyboards, odd time signatures and long guitar solos – with elements of pop, symphonic and cinematic music.”
The Flower Kings will head out on tour across Europe throughout December with Iamthemorning (opens in new tab) and Rikard Sjöblom.
