Babymetal (opens in new tab) have shared a video for their new single Da Da Dance.

The promo features live footage captured during their tour in support of latest studio album Metal Galaxy (opens in new tab), including moments from their first-ever US arena show at The Forum in Los Angeles back in October.

Speaking about the song in an exclusive track-by-track guide in Metal Hammer (opens in new tab), Babymetal said: “This dance metal song is a mixture of future music sounds crossed with Japanese 90s dance music. 

“The guitar is played by Tak Matsumoto who is a very famous guitarist from a Japanese band called B’z.”

B’z came to the attention of video gamers in the west in 2012 when they provided the track Into Free - Dangan (opens in new tab) for Capcom’s Xbox 360 and PlayStation 4 game Dragon’s Dogma.

Along with Matsumoto, Babymetal are joined on Metal Galaxy by a number of other musicians, including Sabaton’s Joakim Brodén who sings on Oh! MAJINAI, and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz who provides vocals on Distortion.
