Swedish rockers Europe has released a new video for the song “The Siege”.
“The Siege” is taken from Europe’s latest album, “Walk The Earth”, which was released last October via Europe’s own Hell & Back label through Silver Lining Music.
Singer Joey Tempest told Planet Rock about the lyrics for “The Siege”: “[It is] basically a postcard from the French Revolution, where democracy took a giant leap forward in France (and subsequently Europe). I worked with my old friend Chris Difford (from the band Squeeze) on this lyric.” As for the music, Tempest said: “John Levén [bass] sent us this riff/idea and we all loved it. In rehearsal, we put it together with a chorus idea Mic [Michaeli, keyboards] had and a very cool song started to emerge. In Abbey Road, Dave helped us with the feel and arrangements and also the small quirky stops in verses and outro.”
