Volbeat shares new song ‘Becoming’

Volbeat has shared the new song “Becoming” from its upcoming eighth studio album, “Servant of the Mind” (Dec. 3, 2021, Republic Records). Listen to “Becoming” here and watch the lyric video below.

Becoming” is the fourth song to be released from the new album. Last month, the band released the rager “Shotgun Blues,” which was preceded by the “double barrel” of summer songs released in June: “Wait a Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før (feat. Stine Bramsen),” the former of which became the band’s ninth number one single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

“I wrote the whole album in three months,” vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen said. “I was in a good place and mood while at home, and had a captive audience of myself … There are a lot of Volbeat signatures in it. If you go back to the first record and compare it to where we are now, you can hear how the band has developed its style, while keeping the signature sound.”
