Of Monsters and Men has premiered a new single called “Visitor.”

The track is the first preview from an upcoming “body of work” that will be released in early 2021 in celebration of the Icelandic group’s 10th anniversary. You can download “Visitor” now via digital outlets, and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.

“‘Visitor’ is a song about disconnection and being on the fringe of change, seeing everything you once knew disappear, and finding yourself in the role of the visitor,” says vocalist and guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir. “

It was written and recorded when the world was a completely different place, but the post-apocalyptic world of the video seems fitting,” she adds. “We shot the music video for it in Iceland in the freezing cold of February right before the pandemic hit. We are so very excited to finally share this song with you. Much love.”

“Visitor” follows Of Monsters and Men’s 2019 album Fever Dream, which features the singles “Alligator” and “Wars.”

This past spring, Of Monsters and Men released a cover of Post Malone‘s hit “Circles.”
