The track is one of ten on the seventh studio album “RESIST” by Within Temptation. It took a long time to make a new album. RESIST is set for release 01 February 2019 via Vertigo Records. It’s their first record in almost five years, their last studio album, “Hydra“, was released early 2014. Within Temptation singer Sharon den Adel explained in an earlier interview how she was unable to write new Within Temptation songs and she doubted to continue with the band. “RESIST” will be an album which takes the nowadays pop songs into a new level, with heavy guitars and strong lyrics.
