Flyleaf are gearing up to release their new album, New Horizons. The disc's title track, which also serves as the album's first single, is now streaming exclusively on Loudwire.
New Horizons is the band's third album and follow-up to 2009′s Memento Mori.
On the title track, singer Lacey Strum's voice takes center stage, with a big assist from the twin guitar assault of Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann. Lyrically, the song takes an uplifting tone right from the opening line, "So you're tired but you're alive / So open up your eyes / And you can your sleep when you are dead."
Bassist Pat Seals describes the tune as follows: "'New Horizons' expresses a feeling of looking toward the unknown future with hope. Definitely one of our best and most joyful songs – I am excited to see how our fans will receive it."
Flyleaf's album New Horizons is set to arrive in the fall, with the title track hitting iTunes on Aug. 21.
