Shortly after revealing an exciting new music video for Roxette’s “The Look”, featuring German pop star Blümchen (a.k.a. Jasmin Wagner) as a duet partner, LORD OF THE LOST have unveiled a cover of another legendary 80s classic, Cutting Crew’s “(I Just) Died In Your Arms“!

The new song off of LORD OF THE LOST’s upcoming first full covers album Weapons Of Mass Seduction, out December 29, 2023, features a guest appearance from rising singer-songwriter Anica Russo, who also took part in Germany’s Eurovision Song Contest 2023 preliminary round Unser Lied für Liverpool (EN: Our Song for Liverpool) alongside LORD OF THE LOST. “(I Just) Died In Your Arms”, Featuring Anica Russo, is now available on all streaming services worldwide.

Representing Germany at the ESC finals in May 2023 brought LORD OF THE LOST to the attention of mainstream media across Europe (with features from BILD, The Sun, BBC among others), exposing their artistic universe to much wider audiences, and was one of the main highlights of the band’s most successful year to date - together with the late 2022 release Blood & Glitter, which charted at #1 (Official German Album Charts).

Anica Russo comments:
"When two completely different worlds come together and something harmonious and unique is created - that's the magic of music. I am grateful that LORD OF THE LOST invited me to be part of their album, in line with the Eurovision motto: United by Music!"

A year after the release of their successful #1 charting album, Blood & Glitter (Official German Album Charts), LORD OF THE LOST are back with a covers album, Weapons Of Mass Seduction, set to be released on December 29, 2023 via Napalm Records. The exciting new offering features plenty of genre-crossing tracks and wraps up the busiest year in the band’s history so far. In addition to storming the charts with their latest studio album, huge highlights include representing Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool in May, providing direct tour support for Iron Maiden (again!), winning over mainstream media internationally, several sold out headline shows and a summer full of big festival appearances.

LORD OF THE LOST state:
"During the production of our last album, Blood & Glitter, while recording our Roxette cover 'The Look' in Finland, it had already become clear that we had opened Pandora's box. The energy and fun of covering the songs of beloved and respected colleagues and idols was something we were determined to continue. So even before the release of Blood & Glitter we started working on this 'covers album' project, which for us is the perfect dessert to Blood & Glitter, before we embark on the adventure of reinventing ourselves again for a new studio album."

Weapons Of Mass Seduction features a wide range of songs from different eras and genres performed in true LORD OF THE LOST style, all surprisingly fitting for the band and hence forming a cohesive collection of covers. Classic heavy metal track “Turbo Lover”, originally by Judas Priest, meets modern pop hits in songs such as Sia’s “Unstoppable”, Bishop Briggs’ “River” and Zella Day’s “High”. Ultravox’ “Hymn”, followed by Michael Jackson’s legendary “Give In To Me” and Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know”, expand the multifaceted selection even further. With added rougher elements such as heavier vocals, Bronski Beat’s captivating 80s electro pop hit “Smalltown Boy” gets a dark makeover in the hands of LORD OF THE LOST. An emotional version of The Pretty Reckless’ “House On A Hill” closes Weapons Of Mass Seduction impactfully.

The covers album comes in various different formats. The deluxe boxset includes a third CD with 10 acoustic tracks, exclusively available in this format. A special 2CD edition of the new covers album provides a cross-cut of covers previously released or already covered live over the course of LORD OF THE LOST’s career. Among them are the Roxette cover "The Look" feat. Blümchen – already known from Blood & Glitter"Children Of The Damned", a homage to Iron Maiden, with whom LORD OF THE LOST experienced intense times during the last two years, and the cover of the Finnish ESC song "Cha Cha Cha" by Käärijä - sung by Chris Harms completely in Finnish.
