American / Norwegian artist Vitne will release a new full-length album, titled “Jupiter,” on June 20th, 2017.

This intense and soul-searching album is a large departure from his glam metal beginnings in Norway, featuring more flute, heavier writing and far more in-depth lyrical content. Check out a brand new music video for the song “Masquerade” below.

“‘Jupiter’ is heavier than my previous albums, both literally and figuratively,” says Vitne. “It’s a very personal album, touching on subjects that many experience throughout life such as feelings of detachment.”

The artwork was made by François Matus and the full track listing is as follows:

1. Mirror
2. Masquerade
3. Lion
4. Make Believe
5. Are You Real?
6. Under the Moonlight
7. Jupiter
