Hurts announce their stunning new single ‘Wings‘, the latest track to be taken from recent album ‘Surrender’, impacting on December 11th through Columbia Records.
Hurts worked with long-term collaborator Jonas Quant to produce ‘Wings’, to create an epic song set to fill arenas across the globe. Theo’s vocals soar above the stomping beat of ‘Wings’ making it one of their biggest and boldest ballads to date.
The video for ‘Wings’ was directed by renowned music video director, Dawn Shadforth, known for her work with the likes of Bjork, Primal Scream, Florence & the Machine and Goldfrapp. Hurts previously collaborated with Shadforth on their music videos for ‘Wonderful Life’ and recent single ‘Lights’ – two striking pieces of work – and ‘Wings’ is another magnificent string to their bow.
Hurts’ third studio album, ‘Surrender’ was released last month via Columbia Records. The band continued to work alongside Swedish producer Jonas Quant on the new record, whilst also joining forces with Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim) as well as esteemed Grammy Award winning producer Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers) to sculpt the sound of their much anticipated follow up to ‘Exile’.
Hurts recently announced their forthcoming European tour, seeing them perform 24 shows throughout February and March 2016, bringing their electric live set to huge venues and arenas across Europe including London’s Brixton Academy and Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena.
