FLYLEAF's new single, "Again", will be officially released to radio on September 25. The song comes off the Texas band's sophomore album, "Memento Mori", which is due on October 20.
FLYLEAF recorded the new CD with producer Howard Benson, who also helmed 2005's "Flyleaf".
Regarding the new album title, singer Lacey Mosley recently said, "We picked the title 'Memento Mori' because even though God has given us favor and your support has allowed us to taste fame and turned us from slaves to kings in some sense, we are humbled by all that has happened because we recognize that we are regular people and no better than anyone else. Our success has been a foolish thing to confound the wise, beating odds and exceeding all we could have imagined for our lives. 'Memento Mori' means that no matter who you are, we are all mortal. There is no king that won’t face a mortal death the same as a slave. So kings and slaves alike should make the most of life and love everyone as selflessly as possible, because tomorrow is another day, and kings can fall, becoming slaves, and slaves can be promoted to become kings."
On the topic of the first single, Mosley revealed, "It is written for people like me, who feel a restlessness to make the world better somehow, but are much too small to carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. It's to say, you have the right heart, but you weren't meant to carry it all. You are so strong, you are able to handle so much! But you can’t handle everything all at once. Let go! God's big and He can handle it all better than you! It's okay to let go and not understand everything."
FLYLEAF guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya recently told the Argus Leader about the new CD, "All of us in the band are probably the most excited about this batch of songs then anything we've written yet. There's so much significance in the music, in the lyrics, in the story that it tells. . . There's so much maturity there that wasn't there on the first record."
FLYLEAF's self-titled debut disc was certified platinum for sales of more than one million copies.
