Grave Digger will release their new album Fields of Blood on May 29. The band is streaming their track "Thousand Tears" right now with a special appearance from Battle Beast vocalist Noora Louhimo.
"With 'Thousand Tears' we pay homage to the unforgettable Queen of Scotland Mary Staurt … Noora from Battle Beast gives Queen Mary an incredible, warm and fragile atmosphere through her voice which at the end of the song turns into pure anger and despair," said Grave Digger vocalist Chris Boltendahl. "We couldn't have found a better voice for this song. We are proud to present 'Thousand Tears' feat. Noora Louhimo. One of the best ballads Grave Digger has ever written, maybe the best of our entire career."
"It’s an honour to do a collaboration with the legendary Grave Digger and I’m very intrigued about the Scottish themed songs they’ve done," added Louhimo. "Now I will also be part of their historical song 'Thousand Tears' as the voice of Queen Mary. I hope all listeners can hear the big emotions and get a little climpse of her story as one of most Powerful woman that lived in her time."
