White Lies unveil new single 'I Don’t Want To Go To Mars'

With their highly-anticipated new album set to land early next year, White Lies have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'I Don't Want To Go To Mars' comes accompanied by a DIY video, put together by the band themselves, and follows on from the previously shared title-track in previewing their sixth LP 'As I Try Not To Fall Apart', which is out on the 18th February via PIAS.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Charles Cave said, "I Don't Want To Go To Mars has all the distorted bombast of White Lies best anthems neatly packed into a short story. The song follows a character seemingly being herded off Earth to live out a sterile and mundane existence on a newly colonised Mars. Fundamentally the song questions the speed at which we are developing the world(s) we inhabit, and what cost it takes on our wellbeing."

While adding about the new video, "Although the song wasn't due an official video, we felt the strong imagery of the lyrics really leant itself towards a visual accompaniment. Using old archive footage, an iPhone, and our very own DIY spirit, we have pieced together a visual narrative to run alongside the song. A full force rebuttal of a concept that's stalked people around the world for generations now; that the grass will be greener on the other side - of the galaxy."
