Pale Waves Share New Single Fall To Pieces
New Album Due 12th February
2022 UK Tour Announced
PALE WAVES have released FALL TO PIECES, premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 as the Hottest Record in The World, and the final track to be taken from the band’s forthcoming second album WHO AM I? ahead of its highly anticipated release on 12 February via Dirty Hit.
Discussing the single, frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie says: “It’s easy to fall into the same patterns in a relationship, which can lead you to have the same argument over and over. Fall to Pieces is about going through that constant cycle of arguing and then making up. It can be hard to break that pattern – sometimes you wonder if you ever will.”
FALL TO PIECES follows on from YOU DON’T OWN ME, a single that Baron-Gracie says is: “for women about what it’s like to be a woman in this world; how society depicts, judges and criticises women on a daily basis.” Prior to this, the band have given fans a taste of the album with the singles EASY, CHANGE and SHE’S MY RELIGION – a deeply personal song for Baron-Gracie representing a same-sex relationship between two women in its true form, without hiding behind the clichés of over-sexualisation or playful experimentation.
Their new single is a seriously addictive composition capturing an era many of us still long for. Even within the darker subject matters, the song structures and tone deliver this innocence and youthful conviction to the tone and this is key to the importance of their vision.
Recently PALE WAVES also announced their 2022 headline UK tour, starting in Bristol and culminating in a huge hometown show in Manchester. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 12 February.
