Hurts have announced the release of their fourth studio album Desire, out on September 29 on Sony Music.
It’s been seven years since the release of the band’s international breakthrough single Wonderful Life and their debut album Happiness. Since then the British duo have established themselves as one of the most popular and successful pop acts throughout Europe, scoring top ten albums and numerous hit singles in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Ireland, Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Finland, the Netherlands and the UK. Hurts have also sold 100,000 gig tickets in 2016 alone, making them one of the most successful new British bands of the past decade.
Following the triumphant career start in 2010, Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson released two further albums - Exile (2013) and Surrender (2015) - which spawned many international hit singles (including Miracle and Some Kind of Heaven) and airplay hits, while their concerts are hailed as the most innovative live events in recent years.
News of the band’s new album follows the release of their brand new single Beautiful Ones which achieved instant critical acclaim from the likes of NME, i-D, Paper, Attitude, Metro and The Line of Best Fit, to name but a few.
The track, which the band describe as a “celebration of individuality”, arrives alongside a startling new video, written by and starring the bands singer Theo Hutchraft, which has already surpassed 1.5 million views.
An unmistakable stand-alone feature in the Hurts success story - completing the great songwriting and their inimitable sound - are the breathtaking visuals. The accompanying video to Beautiful Ones is one of provocative poignancy. Themes of hate, love, brutality and beauty are explored throughout the piece which is rooted in both intrigue and empathy.
