Following some teasing this week, Greta Van Fleet have just announced details of their highly-anticipated third album Starcatcher.

The follow-up to 2021’s The Battle At Garden’s Gate will arrive on July 21 via Lava / Republic Records, with lead single Meeting The Master out now (watch the video below).

Say GVF of their new song: “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.”

Watch the video for Meeting The Master below:

Of Starcatcher as a whole, guitarist Jake Kizska enthuses of the creative process: “We didn’t really have to force or be intense about writing, because everything that happened was very instinctual. If anything, the record is our perspective, and sums up where we are as a group and individually as musicians.”

On a grander scale, bassist/keyboardist Sam teases that, “When I imagine the world of Starcatcher, I think of the cosmos. 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?’”
