Pale Waves drop new single 'The Hard Way'

With their highly-anticipated new album now less than a month away, Pale Waves have delivered yet another cut lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'The Hard Way' follows on from the previously shared tracks ‘Lies’, ‘Jealousy’, and ‘Reasons To Live’ in previewing their third LP 'Unwanted', which is out on the 12th August via Dirty Hit.

Speaking about the new offering, frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie said, “When I was in high school a girl who was being bullied took her own life,” tells Heather. “I got on the bus with her every single morning and I would see her sitting in her same spot. She sat downstairs, and I would go upstairs. ‘The Hard Way’ is about my regret for not helping her, or standing up for her, that I feel now as an adult.

“As a kid you’re so shy and afraid, but I hope it’ll influence people to stand up for those who need help, and help people understand that their words and actions can be really damaging. You don't know how cruel you can be sometimes, especially at that age.”
