Eclipse / Saturday Night (Hallelujah)? “It’s about partying!”
21 September 2021
Sweden’s Eclipse has finished their new album, Wired, which will be out on 8 October, and the band have just released the new party anthem Saturday Night (Hallelujah).
“It was another one of those Saturday nights,” Eclipse frontman Erik Martensson told MetalTalk. “At home, but, for the first time in a very long time, there was hope. Suddenly there were stories about someone’s mom getting ‘the shot’, an old neighbour who was able to see the grandkids for the first time in a year, and I saw an ad for a gig—a real one, without screens or internet connections.
“A songwriter buddy of mine was there, and we walked back to the studio and wrote most of what would become Saturday Night (Hallelujah) in 15 minutes.
“There’s absolutely nothing snotty about this song. It’s about partying! Don’t try to tell me you’re not up for a good fucking party right about now?” he says.
This new album follows on from their most successful album to date, Paradigm, which included the song Viva La Victoria which has had over 15 million streams to date.
Eclipse have performed worldwide, including in the U.S, Japan, Australia and Europe and have opened for giants like Aerosmith and the Scorpions. The new album is expected to push them even further up the rock ‘n roll mountain.
