White Lies Drop New Single “Breakdown Days”
White Lies have today shared a new track, “Breakdown Days”. Previously unreleased, it features on the forthcoming bonus edition of their current album, As I Try Not To Fall Apart, which will be released digitally on [PIAS] on October 21. The album was originally released in February of this year.
Talking about “Breakdown Days”, Harry McVeigh of White Lies said:
“Breakdown Days was written in the heart of the first UK lockdown. The song reflects my mood at the time, I felt trapped in many ways not being able to tour or to work. The lyrics are about yearning to reach out about your problems but because you’re living together, in close quarters, it means you can’t totally lose your shit! I always enjoy dressing up quite dark lyrics in a pop song and I love the contrast in this track. I’m sure we all dress ourselves up sometimes!”
