Swedish melodic rockers H.E.A.T. have released a lyric video for Time On Our Side, the first track to be released from the band's upcoming fifth studio album Into The Great Unknown, the follow-up to 2014's Tearing Down The Walls.
The new album was produced by Tobias Lindell, who also produced Tearing Down The Walls, and was recorded at Karma Sound studios on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand. It also marks the return of guitarist Dave Dalone, who played on the band's first three albums, but left in 2013 before rejoining last October to replace founder member Eric Rivers.
"During the making of this album, I think we all felt a little bit like astronauts going off to space for the first time," says Dalone. "We set out on a journey not knowing what we would come back with, or if we'd even make it back. Somewhere along the way, the pieces began to fall into place. There's just no point in doing the same album over and over again just because it works. When it all comes down to it, you want to make the songs shine to their full potential. If that includes bending the rules of the genre or crossing paths into unknown territory, so be it."
"Time On Our Side is a song about a relationship in which you have lost something over the years and it has become more and more difficult to endure," says singer Erik Grönwall. The song lyrics are sung in the perspective where you are begging your counterpart to have faith and patience in each other with a promise that you’ll do everything in your power to make it better again."
