Back in June, Babymetal announced their new album, Metal Galaxy. Now, they share the album’s tracklist and guest artists.
The duo’s third album, which drops October 11th, will feature various artists including Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz; Sabaton singer Joakim Brodén; Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage; B’z guitarist Tak Matsumoto; and Thai rapper F.HERO. The tracklist reveals the new LP will consist of 14 songs, including the previously released “PA PA YA!” and “Elevator Girl.” Check out the tracklisting below.
Speaking about the album in a statement, they say “As their band name, BABYMETAL, represents ‘the birth of a new genre of music that combines Japanese pop with metal’, hence the term ‘baby’ in the name, the new album expresses Light & Darkness, emotions like duality and ambivalence, and ‘new metal’ created by various chemical reactions as other entities evolved and expanded in this album. Just like the Sun and the Moon changes the appearance of this world with its daylight and moonlight, with evermore new type of various sound, their music paints the metal galaxy in different colors.”
