OPETH PREMIERES NEW SONG, “WILL O THE WISP,” FROM UPCOMING ALBUM ‘SORCERESS’

Sweden’s musical alchemists, OPETH, have unveiled an earnest new track called “Will O The Wisp.” The track is found on the band’s forthcoming, 12th studio album, Sorceress, that will be released on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records with Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

In a recent, exclusive track-by-track feature with Metal Hammer, vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt gave some insight behind the creation of the song. “It’s a song inspired by “Dun Ringil”l by Jethro Tull (from the album Stormwatch, 1979). I wanted to do a song with my capo really high, so it’s up on the fifth fret. It makes the guitar sound really glittery. I just wanted to go for a simple, catchy vocal melody. It has a slightly positive vibe to it, but the lyrics are really, really dark. It’s a beautiful song, I think. I’m really happy with that one.”

Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes and Amazon Music will receive an instant download of “Will O the Wisp” and the band’s previously released title track, “Sorceress.” Links to pre-orders can be found below.
