Grave Digger are celebrating their fortieth anniversary with the release of their overall twentieth studio effort, Fields of Blood, which is scheduled to arrive on May 29th via Napalm Records. Today (9th), the group has unveiled the second single with the video for the song “Thousand Tears,” which features Battle Beast singer Noora Louhimo.

Frontman Chris Boltendahl comments:

“With ‘Thousand Tears’, we pay homage to the unforgettable Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart… Noora from Battle Beast gives Queen Mary an incredible, warm and fragile atmosphere through her voice which at the end of the song turns into pure anger and despair. We couldn’t have found a better voice for this song. We are proud to present ‘Thousand Tears’ feat. Noora Louhimo. One of the best ballads Grave Digger has ever written, maybe the best of our entire career.”

Noora adds:

 “It’s an honour to do a collaboration with the legendary Grave Digger and I’m very intrigued by the Scottish themed songs they’ve done. Now I will also be part of their historical song ‘Thousand Tears’ as the voice of Queen Mary. I hope all listeners can hear the big emotions and get a little glimpse of her story as one of most powerful women that lived in her time.”
