Greta Van Fleet stream new single Meeting The Master

Greta Van Fleet is streaming “Meeting The Master” as the lead single from the band’s newly-announced forthcoming album, “Starcatcher.”

Due July 21, the group recorded their third studio album with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sammy Hagar) at the legendary RCA Studios in Nashville.

Throughout the ten-song collection the band explores the duality of fantasy versus reality and the contrast between light and darkness.

“We had this idea that we wanted to tell these stories to build a universe,” says drummer Danny Wagner. “We wanted to introduce characters and motifs and these ideas that would come about here and there throughout our careers through this world.”

“We didn’t really have to force or be intense about writing, because everything that happened was very instinctual,” explains lead singer Jake Kiszka. "If anything, the record is our perspective, and sums up where we are as a group and individually as musicians."

“Starcatcher” marks the follow-up to 2021’s “The Battle at Garden’s Gate”, which debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 while simultaneously topping several US rock charts.

As for the newly-available lead single, the band says: “‘Meeting The Master’ peers into an esoteric world heeded by the word of a wise teacher. Sung in the voice of a devout believer, and eventual group exclamation, the song details the love these fervent followers have for their teacher and their firm belief in his vision. It’s an exotic spiritual journey. A dark comedy that inevitably ends in chaos.”
