Greta Van Fleet has announced it will release its third studio album, Starcatcher, on July 21.
The band has released the first single, “Meeting the Master.” About the song the band says, “‘Meeting The Master’ peers into an esoteric world heeded by the word of a wise teacher. Sung in the voice of a devout believer, and eventual group exclamation, the song details the love these fervent followers have for their teacher and their firm belief in his vision. It’s an exotic spiritual journey. A dark comedy that inevitably ends in chaos.”
Starcatcher is produced by Grammy winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Rival Sons, Philip Sayce) and was recorded at RCA Studios in Nashville.
“We didn’t really have to force or be intense about writing, because everything that happened was very instinctual,” said guitarist Jake Kiszka. “If anything, the record is our perspective, and sums up where we are as a group and individually as musicians.
The album features 10 tracks. “We had this idea that we wanted to tell these stories to build a universe,” says drummer Danny Wagner. “We wanted to introduce characters and motifs and these ideas that would come about here and there throughout our careers through this world.”
Bassist/keyboardist Sam Kiszka added, “When I imagine the world of Starcatcher, I think of the cosmos,” he says. “It makes me ask a lot of questions, like ‘Where did we come from?’ or ‘What are we doing here?’ But it’s also questions like, ‘What is this consciousness that we have, and where did it come from?’”
