Babymetal debut towering new single from ‘The Other One’ with “Monochrome”

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on November 17, 2022

The track also includes the reveal of the band’s first ever lyric video.

Early last month, heavy music enigma Babymetal unveiled the first glimpse of their newest iteration with the arrival of the first single from the band’s forthcoming concept album, The Other One. The immersive 10-track odyssey is being purposed as a restoration project depicting Babymetal’s “other” story – one previously undisclosed to the fans.

The confirmation of the new project marked the next chapter of the band’s existence following their epic 10-year retrospective with 10 BABYMETAL Years – a rollout that included several high profile arena shows and an album that declared that Babymetal would be “sealed” from the world until further notice. The conclusion ultimately marked the end of an era for the band, with the news of The Other One seemingly beginning another.

Shortly following the confirmation of the album, Babymetal released the first single with “Divine Attack – Shingeki -” an epic introduction to the latest iteration of the ensemble. Paired with a consuming visual, the track offering a powerful glimpse of the epic next chapter of one of metal music’s most enigmatic forces.

Now, Babymetal have delivered a second serving from The Other One with the arrival of the massive “Monochrome”. Adding significance to the single, the track is coupled with the band’s first ever lyric video reiterating the impact of the stanzas that depict the idea of hope, in an otherwise hopeless world.

As for the creative scope of the new chapter of Babymetal,  a total of 10 songs comprise the narrative of The Other One. True to the band’s grandiose approach, each song represents a unique theme based on 10 separate parallel worlds that they have discovered. As part of the album’s rollout, five introductory singles will be available worldwide digitally. The tracks are slated to arrive once a month en route to the album’s release – October, November, January, February, and March. 

In addition, Babymetal has confirmed a 2-day engagement, “BABYMETAL RETURNS – THE OTHER ONE – “. The event will tale place on January 28th and 29th of next year at Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall in Tokyo. The band will then embark on a spring tour supporting Sabaton for their European arena tour.
