About the track, the Swedish siblings said….
‘The Lion’s Roar’ was written during a U.K. tour when we drove through a very dramatic moorland in Scotland. During the tour, we listened a lot to Townes Van Zandt in the car. We were inspired by this mystic scenery, as well as Townes Van Zandt’s beautiful melodies. By far our darkest song to date. It was the first song we wrote for the new record, and we chose to name the record after it. ‘The Lion’s Roar’ marked a new stage in our songwriting, and the mystic feeling of this song came to characterize a big part of the new record.
