Japanese kawaii metal band Babymetal unveils details of their upcoming studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s “Metal Resistance”. It’s titled “Metal Galaxy” and comes out October 11 via earMUSIC. Listen to the new single “Pa Pa Ya” below.
“We’re excited to announce BABYMETAL’s 3rd album ‘Metal Galaxy’! The album’s main theme is that BABYMETAL are on an odyssey to the Metal Galaxy and a different variety of songs are packed within the album. We are on an odyssey to the Metal Galaxy. Welcome to the world of BABYMETAL!!”
“Metal Galaxy” is Babymetal’s third studio album and the first after last year’s departure of Youimetal who decided to pursue a solo career, leaving Babymetal a duo consisting of Su-metal and Moametal backed by Kami Band.
The album announcement comes with a brand new single “Pa Pa Ya”. The title refers to the exotic fruit papaya, with the song depicting a hot and spicy summer with an up-tempo beat. The track features Thai rapper F.HERO, whose collaboration adds an even more exotic and seasonal taste to the song. Stream the single below.
