In October 2020, progressive rockers The Flower Kings released their new double album “Islands” (read our review at Stargazed Magazine HERE). Now the band have launched a brand new video for the track “Black Swan”.

Roine Stolt comments: “”Black Swan” was a little piano melody I wrote around spring 2019 – I thought of it as ‘Polish melancholic’ or a ballet piano piece. I did present a demo for the Transatlantic sessions but when it didn’t stick there I brought it along to the TFK “Islands” session. Here it found its way in to the album and concept and with a slightly more dry guitar-driven sound and with nods to both The Beatles & Queen it became one of my favourite tracks. Hasse delivers some of his finest vocal on the album here.
