On October 30th, progressive rockers THE FLOWER KINGS will release their new double album “Islands” on InsideOutMusic, just a year after the group’s much celebrated “Waiting For Miracles”. Today they launch a new video for the third single from the album, “Morning News”, and you can watch it below.
 
Roine Stolt comments: “When the world shut down – all shows at risk, or cancelled, we found a way out of the pandemonium & panic by doing what we do best. Write music and record it! There was already so many great songs & ideas in stock that just needed work and some love & perfecting. The plan was to write and record a very ‘intuitive & inclusive’ album where we could be free to do any style to fit in a multicolored tapestry. ‘Morning News’ was an acoustic piece that was a natural choice – sort of a simple McCartney style acoustic song – that needed little or no wall of sounds. The song is about a beautiful end, realization and acceptance of our own mortality.”

The 92 minutes long “Islands” features artwork by legend Roger Dean (Yes, Asia, Gentle Giant, Greenslade, Uriah Heep) and all trademark sounds and melodies, the band is renowned for. From vintage keys to epic guitar solos, from odd drum patterns to symphonic elements, THE FLOWER KINGS present a dynamic and complex record that is bold, bombastic and beautiful.
