Emily Carter

Zeal & Ardor have shared another new song in the lead-up to February 2022's self-titled album.

Their latest effort – following Bow in September – is a mostly German-sung track, with frontman Manuel Gagneux explaining: "Götterdämmerung is our most bare bones song yet. No gimmicks, no frills, no distractions, just rage.

"Most of it is in German commanding your attention and heralding the dawn of a new point of view. This is Götterdämmerung."

Of the self-titled album as a whole, Manuel continues: "The most important thing for an album of ours to do is transport you instantly into our mood, our world. Even though this might not be the one you might expect from us, this record certainly delivers on that front. We had time to hone in to what we think makes us interesting and what sounds we would like to explore through this we have found our home. Home is burning. Welcome home."
