White Lies are pleased to share a brand new track called Hurt My Heart. Recorded in Los Angeles whilst on hiatus and what has been a busy year traversing various continents in support of album Five released earlier this year, their first for new label [PIAS] Recordings.
One of a couple of tracks the band recently recorded with US producer Andrew Wells (5 Seconds Of Summer. Fall Out Boy) Hurt My Heart sits neatly amongst the other tracks on Five – which reached Top Fifteen status on release ln the UK this year along with an array of playlist action both here and further field.
Lending some context Charles Cave, lyricist and bass-player explains the recent studio sojourn; “For ten years we have stayed loyal to the album format – only sitting down to write and then record when it was time for a new complete work. Whilst there is a lot of love about that process, it is something of an endurance exercise. We decided it was about time to see what happened if we just wrote a few things with the idea to release music disconnected from an LP; something that could sit within the same universe as ‘Five’.”
Re-energised, Five has seen the trio scaling new creative heights, exhibiting much of the trio’s musical DNA from their origins whilst forging ahead artistically. Hurt My Heart continues to exploit the band’s recent trajectory – an emphatic flourish countering their bold finesse show White Lies are fervent and committed as ever and ready for the year-end run-in…
2019 marks the tenth anniversary of their debut album To Lose My Life and the band embark on a European tour to celebrate the fact with shows throughout November and December prior to which they have a run of Russian, Ukrainian and Spanish dates.
