Sweden’s musical alchemists, OPETH, have unveiled an earnest new track called “Will O The Wisp”. The track is found on the band’s forthcoming, 12th studio album, Sorceress, that will be released on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records with Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Stream “Will O The Wisp” now below.

In a recent, exclusive track-by-track feature with Metal Hammer, vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt gave some insight behind the creation of the song. “It’s a song inspired by “Dun Ringill” by JETHRO TULL (from the album Stormwatch, 1979). I wanted to do a song with my capo really high, so it’s up on the fifth fret. It makes the guitar sound really glittery. I just wanted to go for a simple, catchy vocal melody. It has a slightly positive vibe to it, but the lyrics are really, really dark. It’s a beautiful song, I think. I’m really happy with that one.”

Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes and Amazon Music will receive an instant download of “Will O The Wisp” and the band’s previously released title track, “Sorceress”. OPETH will make their awaited return to the U.S. later this month with a performance at Ozzfest/Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA, which will be followed by a headlining North American tour. The run will include a monumental show at the prestigious Radio City Music Hall in New York on October 1st. Tickets are available for the tour now at http://opeth.com/.
