White Lies announce new album 'As I Try Not To Fall Apart'

Following on from the release of their much-loved 2019 LP 'Five', White Lies have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'As I Try Not To Fall Apart' is being previewed by the record's title-track, which comes accompanied by a stunning new video directed by James Arden (aka The Trash Factory), and is set to be released on the 18th February via PIAS.

Speaking about the new offering, the band said, "We wrote this song quickly, late one night, and often the songs which come quickest are written from the gut and the heart, not with the head. We wanted the melody to feel like a hymn, to give the confessional lyrics weight despite being wrapped up as a pop song. It’s about accepting vulnerability as a man, and knowing it’s ok to be broken. There’s never been a more pressing time to spread the message that it’s ok to not be ok."

While director Arden added about the new video, "The track made me think of people trying to lift themselves out of emotional spirals - navigating feelings of fragility and fighting everyday pressures just so they can keep it together - and it made me think about how we can be buried and overwhelmed by our feelings and emotions, and how we could explore that, visually."
