Delain release a new haunting ballad “Ghost House Heart” off of their upcoming album “Apocalypse & Chill”. It comes with a beautiful music video which can be seen below.
The vocalist Charlotte Wessels on the track: “Going back to such an intimate song after the bombast of “Masters of Destiny” and “Burning Bridges” feels a bit like switching gears, but I enjoy every minute of it. Singing this song is almost meditative, and I love the way voice, piano and violin weave together in the track. I hope our fans will love this change of pace as well, and I can’t wait to perform this song live on stage during our upcoming UK tour, and our Valentine’s Day release show in Utrecht.”
Keyboardist Martijn Westerholt adds: “This song was created while spontaneously playing and singing together with Charlotte. It seemed to create itself. It’s also a nice change of pace in relation to the other songs we have written for the new album. As a pianist, of course, it is fun to play a piano song for a change. We worked with violinist Shir-Ran Yinon and I think the way the violin intertwines with the vocal lines is mesmerizing. The video was a lot fun to make and it was a beautiful set with a lot of history.”
The ballad is taken from Delain’s upcoming full-length offering titled “Apocalypse & Chill”, due out February 7. It features an electrifying blend of heavy rock and metal influences and marks a new chapter in the band’s evolving catalogue.
