BABYMETAL Releases First Digital Track from 2023 Album ‘THE OTHER ONE’

26.October.2022 | MUSIC

Ahead of the release of the new album THE OTHER ONE on March 24, 2023, BABYMETAL has announced that it will release five digital singles worldwide in October, November, January, February, and March. The first single, Divine Attack -Shingeki-, is now available to stream. 

Last year, following the tenth year of the group’s activities, BABYMETAL announced that it would “seal” itself off from the world until further notice. In April 2022, THE OTHER ONE was announced as a way to relaunch the group in the METALVERSE, a piece of the virtual metaverse. 

 

The upcoming concept album will be inspired by the idea of a BABYMETAL that fans don’t know, and a total of 10 songs have been discovered within THE OTHER ONE restoration project, with each song representing a specific theme based on 10 separate parallel worlds that the members have discovered. Divine Attack -Shingeki- is based on the parallel world of ‘CAVALRY,’ and follows the members of BABYMETAL down a road less traveled. Listening to the song conjures an image of a cavalry troop running into battle and into the future, and SU-METAL wrote the lyrics for the song–a first for the group.

 

BABYMETAL has finally broken the seal, and on January 28 and 29, 2023, the duo will hold the ‘BABYMETAL RETURNS -THE OTHER ONE’ 2-day concert at Makuhari Messe in Chiba. Starting in April 2023, the group will tour the UK and EU and the Swedish band Sabaton. More information will be announced in the near future, so keep an eye on social media and BABYMETAL’s official website!

    Metal J-pop group BABYMETAL has brought their 10th-anniversary celebration to a close with a new YouTube video. The group previously announced that their history would be ‘sealed’ on October 10, 2021. 

     

    BABYMETAL  – THE ONE – STAIRWAY TO LIVING LEGEND

     

    The video shows SU-METAL and MOAMETAL climbing a staircase into the clouds, leaving the Earth in order to become ‘living legends’ of the Metal Galaxy they have cultivated for the past decade. Fans will also recognize the track THE ONE, which has become the group’s anthem. 

     

    BABYMETAL has been celebrating its anniversary for the past year with special concert performances, limited-time merchandise, and exhibitions. The 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN concert, held this year from January to April, was the group’s first collection of solo shows at Nippon Budokan. 

     

    Despite all of the fanfare, this might not be the end of BABYMETAL. Sadly, it has been said that ‘only the Fox God knows’ when the seal will be broken, but the girls are asking fans to ‘stay metal’ until the next chapter of their journey is announced.
