Mastodon‘s new album Emperor Of Sand is due to be released on Friday, 31st of March and now the US metal outfit has shared the second single from the forthcoming record, a track called ‘Show Yourself’.
At the back end of January Mastodon announced their first album in three years and unveiled the first single from it ‘Sultan’s Curse’, but their latest single shows a more progressive side to the band.
Still just as heavy as the first single, ‘Show Yourself’ has a more pop-driven vibe and is definitely less in-your-face, indicating that the new album could be Mastodon’s most diverse offering yet.
That’s exactly what the band indicated with some cryptic comments last month left on their YouTube channel. “Were recording music. Different kinds of music. World music. Uh, heavy metal. R&B. Celtic music. Music to dance to. Music to sit down to. Music to do yoga. Music to do all different kinds of, um, exercises to,” they wrote.
