THERION Singer LINNÉA VIKSTRÖM Releases Debut Single, 'Aliens', With New Project QFT
March 20, 2018
The Big Bang, space travel, black holes, singularity, aliens, stars colliding and the inevitable end of the universe: the solo debut from internationally praised metal singer Linnéa Vikström spans time from modern day science to the eternal, philosophical questions regarding the beginning, the end and life beyond our own planet.
As the singer for the Swedish symphonic metal phenomenon THERION, Linnea Vikström already has a worldwide fanbase. But when she makes her solo debut as QFT (QUANTUM FIELD THEORY),we get to meet a completely new side of the beloved singer. The first single from the upcoming album, "Aliens", is out now through Despotz Records.
"'Aliens' is one of the songs of the album that stands out the most, both in terms of style and theme," explains Vikstrom. "This song is sci-fi fantasy, me and the band setting out on an interstellar journey. The pre-chorus is based on an old AOR song I wrote a few years ago and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg made the riff come alive. It was a real team effort and we are all really proud to finally present it to you!"
The upcoming album, "Live In Space", is a dynamic and musically diversified theme album about the universe, where the ten tracks are beautifully bound together by Linnéa's enormous vocal range and clear vision. The result is a detailed journey through space and time, that won't leave anyone unaffected.
