Flyleaf, ‘Something Better’ (Featuring P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval) – Exclusive Song Premiere
Flyleaf are finding their footing with new frontwoman Kristen May and the vocalist is now putting her stamp on a new song that also features a very special guest. Noisecreep and Loudwire are partnering up to bring you the exclusive premiere of Flyleaf’s ‘Something Better,’ which features a guest vocal turn by P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval.
‘Something Better’ will be featured on a new EP titled ‘Who We Are’ that will arrive on July 9. The disc is a mixture of familiar Flyleaf songs with May on vocals as well as the newly written track. The singer came on board shortly after the band completed and released their ‘New Horizons’ album last year, as longtime vocalist Lacey Sturm exited the group.
The band says, “The live tracks came from our 2013 winter tour with Drowning Pool. ‘Something Better’ is one of the first songs we wrote with Kristen May. It was an awesome experience writing together! Plus, having Sonny from P.O.D. on this track was really special. We’ve been fans of theirs for years, and it was an honor to do this collaboration. We think y’all will love it!” ‘Something Better’ was penned and recorded during a break in the band’s tour schedule as they ducked into the studio with producer Howard Benson.
On top of ‘Something Better,’ the ‘Who We Are’ EP features live versions of ‘Call You Out,’ ‘Fire Fire’ and ‘Broken Wings’ from the ‘New Horizons’ disc, as well as ‘Sorrow’ from the band’s self-titled debut effort. You can expect ‘Something Better’ to find its way into sets this summer as the band is co-headlining a trek with P.O.D., thus making a Sandoval collaboration likely.
The Flyleaf / P.O.D. run begins July 13 in Kenosha, Wis. The full itinerary can be seen below. As for the ‘Who We Are’ EP, fans will soon be able to get it bundled with limited edition silk-screen prints designed by bassist Pat Seals via the band’s website. Stay tuned for further details.
