The tracks serve as the first pieces of new music from the band since their Rewind, Replay, Rebound album cycle.While the pandemic put any touring ideas on hold last year, the band members did use the downtime to start working on new music. The fall always brings the thunder and lightning…”Always evolving their sound, Volbeat accentuated "Wait a Minute My Girl" by adding guest sax player Doug Corcoran and piano player Raynier Jacob Jacildo from JD McPherson's band. Singer Michael Poulsen, bassist Kaspar Boye Larsen and drummer Jon Larsen were able to connect with their longtime producer Jacob Hansen in Denmark while guitarist Rob Caggiano chimed in remotely from New York.“As the weather begins to warm and the days get longer in many parts of the world, we wanted to share two songs that we wrote and recorded over these long, difficult 15 months that have the vibe and feel of summer," state the band. Both musicians previously appeared on Volbeat's 2019 song "Die to Live." Meanwhile, singer Mia Maja returned to add backing vocals on the song.“Dagen Før” features guest vocals from the aforementioned Danish artist Stine Bramsen of the band Alphabeat. "We’re beyond thankful that even during a lockdown our good friends Doug, Ray and Mia Maja were able to put the pedal to the metal with us on 'Wait a Minute My Girl,' and we’re absolutely thrilled that Stine Bramsen, who we’ve known and admired for a long time, was willing to lend her incredible talents to 'Dagen Før.'"They continue, "We hope you enjoy this double-barreled blast of summer tunes as much as we enjoyed creating them, and we can’t wait for you to hear what else we have in store for you.
