Watch The Video For Greta Van Fleet’s New Single, My Way, Soon
Michigan rock’n’rollers Greta Van Fleet are back with their first new material in over a year.
The quartet’s rousing new single – My Way, Soon – comes accompanied by a video that was shot, edited and directed by the band, and offers a personal insight into their life both on and off the road.
“This song was inspired by what three years of touring did by opening so many doorways,” explains frontman Josh Kiszka. “This is my truth, how I feel about all of our travels, but I know it echoes the experiences and changes of perspectives for Jake [Kiszka, guitar], Sam [Kiszka, bass/keyboards], and Danny [Wagner, drums] as well.”

These newfound experiences and lessons learned have seeped their way into Greta Van Fleet’s new record, too, with Danny revealing of the follow-up to 2019’s Anthem Of The Peaceful Army: “The definition of ’normal’ has very much broadened over the past couple of years, and it has affected us as musicians, especially in the writing and recording of this new album. We realised that while growing up, we had been shielded by a lot of things, we were unaware of a lot of things. And then we were thrown out into this huge world, and it was a bit of a culture shock at first.”
“We’ve seen how people live in different parts of the world,” continues Sam, “and we’ve developed intrinsic respect for different cultures and people. We’ve gone from driving down a highway to a show and seeing endless miles of shantytowns in Sao Paulo, to playing some of the richest places on earth.”
Jake adds: “The more we’ve seen — different cultures, people, and traditions — we’ve also seen a similarity between ourselves and these different cultures. It surprises me how similar we all are.”
