As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, last year saw the first live release from the Swedish melodic rock act Eclipse. Not content to rest on their laurels, Eclipse are now putting the finishing touches on their upcoming new studio album, to be released this fall. In the meantime, the band has released a brand new single. Watch the video for “Saturday Night (Hallelujah)” here:
“It was another one of those Saturday nights. At home. But, for the first time in a very long time there was hope. Suddenly there were stories about someone’s mom getting ‘the shot’, an old neighbor who was able to see the grandkids for the first time in a year, and I saw an ad for a gig. A real one, without screens or internet connections. A songwriter buddy of mine was there and we walked back to the studio and wrote most of what would become ‘Saturday Night (Hallelujah)’ in 15 minutes,” says Eclipse frontman Erik Martensson.
“There’s absolutely nothing snotty about this song. It’s about partying! Don’t try to tell me you’re not up for a good f***ing party right about now?” continues Martensson.
