Europe have premiered the video to their sublime current single ‘Walk The Earth’.
Currently on the Planet Rock A List, the towering anthem comes with a Patric Ullaeus directed video that was filmed in moody black & white in an abandoned warehouse.
Singer Joey Tempest says: “We asked Patric Ullaeus, our friend and film maker to make our video for Walk the Earth. He's just got a new location in Gothenburg which we were lucky enough to be the first to use.
“When we sent Patric the song he said he got completely overwhelmed ‘goosebumps and tears’ he said. We love his work with other artists like Arch Enemy amongst others. He's got that special ‘eye’ to film rock bands.
“To quote our keyboard player we were absolutely ‘STOKED’ when we saw the final video. Walk The Earth is possibly the proudest we've been of a song and video in years, if not decades! We can't wait for everyone to see and hear it.”
Watch the video here:
The single is the opening song and title track for Europe’s eleventh studio album ‘Walk The Earth’, which is released on Friday 20th October through Europe’s own label Hell & Back via Silver Lining Music.
Boasting 10 new compositions, ‘Walk The Earth’ was recorded at London’s hallowed Abbey Road Studios and produced by the Grammy Award winning Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Whiskey Myers) who also helmed ‘War of Kings’.
The album is adorned with artwork created by Los Angeles artist Mike Sportes of Filth Mart.
Joey Tempest comments: “We were in the studio a few days into recording and Dave (Cobb) comes in wearing this very cool T-Shirt with one of Mike's designs on it.
“Immediately we knew we had to check Mike's other work and have him come up with an exclusive design for us based on the vibe of the album. We are very proud to have his amazing artwork as the Walk The Earth album cover!”
The ‘Walk The Earth’ track-listing is as follows:
1. Walk The Earth
