London Grammar share a symphonic new ballad, Hell To The Liars
London Grammar’s new album, Truth Is A Beautiful Thing, is out this Friday.
It’s been four years since the release of their debut If You Wait, but this Friday, London Grammar return with their sophomore album Truth Is A Beautiful Thing. In an interview with NME back in March, singer Hannah Reid said to expect a more dream-like sound on this record. “The first album was a lot more about relationships, but then the second one is too – but in a different way. It’s probably about the relationship you have with yourself, rather than one specific other person. The relationship that us three had on the road, and there’s a lot about the meaning of life in general, which is SO lame, but that is what we talk about!”. This vision very much holds firm through the exploration of the five cuts we have thus far heard from the release. From their powerful return on January 1st on Rooting For You to Big Picture’s cosmic progression, to more recently, Oh Woman Oh Man, a song that “mirrors the question of identity, and to what extent gender plays a role in it”. Working with Oscar-nominated director Tony Kaye (American History X), the British-trio recently released two videos for the song - one for the woman, and one for the man.
Today though, four days until the release of Truth Is A Beautiful Thing, the band have shared one final cut from the record in Hell To The Liars. The record sits at 11 tracks, and looking at the tracklist, Hell To The Liars come in during the middle, at number 5. It’s another symphonic ballad, that once again showcases the vocal power of singer/frontwoman Hannah Reid. Through the combined efforts of Hannah’s echoing vocal, some violins, a beautiful piano piece and a moody guitar riff, this tracks sits firmly during the middle of their forthcoming release. The group have also accompanied the release of Hell To The Liars with a live recording of the song, which was filmed at Round Chapel in Hackney, London.
