Haken Premiere New Song “Nightingale”


0

With their North American co-headlining tour with Symphony X looming, English progressive metal band Haken have unveiled a new track by the name of “Nightingale“. The song features contributions from keyboardist Pete Jones, who officially returned to the band earlier this year.

Haken had the following to say about it:

“‘Nightingale‘ was the first track Pete Jones presented to the band after rejoining Haken this year. The initial song idea quickly inspired of the classic Haken sound and naturally evolved into some new harmonic territory. The song ranges from delicate moments to monstrous riffs.

We enlisted Jens Bogren to mix ‘Nightingale‘ and, as always, he’s blown us away by capturing every detail while delivering power and energy. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

Lyrically, the song reflects on the creative process itself; with a message that although it may be difficult of late, we must remember to be thankful for the positives in life; be they big or small.”

The artwork for this new single came about via a fan competition with Belgium’s Rein Van Oyen having illustrated the winning piece. Haken‘s co-headlining run with Symphony X will find Trope opening and is set to run as follows:
