17th September 2018: White Lies have today released details of their forthcoming new record ‘Five’, as well as premiering ‘Time To Give’, the first new song from the album.
The new album ‘Five’ will be out on February 1st 2019, which is a whole decade after their debut dropped in 2019. ‘Five’ was recorded between the UK and the USA, and in a poetic move the band worked with songwriter Ed Buller, who also worked on their debut back in ’09.
Discussing the new album and their 10 year anniversary, White Lies said:
“This is a mile stone record for White Lies.
“It marks our decade as a band, which has pushed us to expand our sound and reach new territory artistically – it marks the start of a new and exciting chapter for us.”
White Lies have announced details of a new album, tour and single for their first new material since 2013’s ‘Big TV’ album.
Out on October 7, ‘Friends’ is self-produced by the trio of Harry McVeigh, Charles Cave and Jack Brown and was recorded at Bryan Ferry’s London studio.
The album is preceded by new single ‘Take It Out On Me’, which can be streamed below and impacts on August 12. Bassist Charles Cave said of the song: ““Right up until we recorded the song it was called ‘89-1-3’. It was inspired by a lunatic on Instagram who kept commenting on a friend’s photos in pseudo-Biblical verse. From his profile, I discovered he lived in a remote cabin with a rough-looking dog. He posted weird videos in which he quoted random numbers. As a challenge, I turned them in to a song. The only problem was that it went so well everyone said it should be the first single, so I relented and gave the chorus real lyrics.”
‘Friends’ is followed by a lengthy European tour which finishes with an eight-date UK run starting a month after the album’s release.
The album is available as both regular vinyl and a picture disc as well as standard CD and download formats. A box-set adds four extra songs and a cassette of the album.
Cave, White Lies’ main lyricist, said that friendship is a major theme of the album. He commented: “In the past couple of years, we’ve noticed friends’ life situations causing them to make big decisions – marriages, kids, moving out of London. Friendships have begun to feel adult, and our perception of time has changed. As kids, if you didn’t see a mate for a fortnight, you’d wonder what was wrong. Now you might not see someone for six months and it doesn’t matter.”
