Nergal’s inscrutable blackened blues project, ME AND THAT MAN, has revealed their fourth single “Męstwo” off their upcoming album, New Man, New Songs, Same Sh*t, Vol.1, to be released on March 27, 2020 via Napalm Records. The single is a fundamental part of the album and will take the listener on a sorrowful journey, showing the world that even the Devil himself is sometimes caught by feelings of self-doubt and melancholy.
“Męstwo” is the first song that Nergal has ever performed completely in Polish, and will captivate each and every listener with its mournful and forlorn vibe. This single might be the most intimate one on this album, and it’s the only song in which Nergal himself sings, making it even more special. A catchy rhythm, bluesy guitar and shuffling drums bewitch the listener on this standout song. The single is accompanied by a striking audiovisual that captures the essence of “Męstwo” perfectly. Watch it below!
Nergal comments on “Męstwo”: “When our drummer, Kuman first sent me the demo version of “Męstwo,” I was immediately drawn to it – it’s a simple song and simply written but totally honest and genuine. It’s the only song on the record I sing on and it’s exclusively Polish. “Męstwo” translates to manhood; in this world of judgement, prejudice and struggle, the message of the song is to remain on your own course, to stay motivated and follow your own intuition – this is what manhood represents to me.”
