Bandleader Luca Cimarusti offers of the new song:

“This was the first song I wrote for this album, and is one of my favorites on it. I kind of used it to sonically and thematically guide the rest of the tracks, working more with layering guitars and synths and different vocal dynamics than I ever have before. While most of this record is very lyrically personal, this one takes elements from deep Dune lore, which are some of my favorite stories. The spoken word part in the chorus is borrowed from a Fremen mantra first shared in 1981’s God Emperor of Dune, which honors the harsh way of life and the unrelenting perseverance of the natives of Arrakis.”
