Swedish band Royal Republic have a new single out from their third album, "Weekend Man".

GRD debuted "Baby", wanting to hear what people think. Check out some reactions and listen to "Baby" and let us know your opinion.

In an interview with The Moshville Times, Royal Republic's vocalist and guitarist, Adam Grahn was asked to describe the band's sound:

It’s funny, I should really come up with a good for this one because I’ve had the question a number of times now. Call us what you want. Put whatever label you want on it, really... Rock is very wide, obviously. We called it Chuck Norris rock back in the day, kung fu rock, variations thereof. I don’t know, it’s rock, like I said, put whatever label you want on it. As long as you like it, we don’t really care."

In talking about the new album, "Weekend Man", Grahn told The Moshville Times,

I can tell you it took about…twenty months, all-in, from the first writing session to the mastering. It’s our third album, we learned some things along the way. I think it’s the most Royal Republic-y album Royal Republic has ever made in the way that we felt after the second album was a bit rushed... So we learned we really need to take the time to get the songs right because no matter what studio we go into, what producer we work with, we need the songs to be right. That’s the foundation of everything. We put everything off, we didn’t tour for eighteen months, we did one or two shows. We spent twenty months on the songs and I think it was worth it in the end. We had a much clearer vision overall this time. We know who we are now; we know what we want to sound like."
