Asia – Valkyrie

That’s the first track off of Asia’s soon-to-be released album, Gravitas…

Legendary British band ASIA have released a new video, for ‘Valkyrie’, the lead track of their upcoming release, Gravitas, a brave new album that explores different musical landscapes while embracing its familiar musical past. {…}

From the title track, ‘Gravitas’, which chronicles a man’s struggle in the battlefield of life, to the powerfully compelling tale of unrequited love, ‘The Closer I Get To You’, the album is a tour de force for the band whose music has become a staple to rock fans.

“Pure, unadulterated and stereotypical ASIA, with raw energy, enthusiasm and free from impurities,” says John Wetton. “It conveys the spectrum of emotion and colour from real life agonies to ecstatic fantasy of escapism. Great songs, fabulous performance. Gravitas is Asia by Asia. At last.”

“With the addition of Sam it allowed us to take the band in a slightly different, and perhaps tougher, direction,” says Carl Palmer. “As a band we have been able to grow, while at the same time, remain true to the classic Asia sound that our fans know and love.”
