With their eagerly-awaited new album set to drop later this month, Cigarettes After Sex have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Falling In Love' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Heavenly' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Cry', which is set to be released on the 25th October via Partisan Records.
Speaking about their latest offering, frontman Greg Gonzalez said, "This was one of the few songs where I had the music written before we got to Mallorca, I wrote the melody and chords in my apartment in Brooklyn in 2017. It wasn't until two years later that I finally wrote the lyrics, it was during mixing and we literally had one day left. I wrote and sang the song that night, and in the performance you can hear the exhaustion and emotion of finally finishing this record.
"My girlfriend and I, our relationship was long distance for so long, so we developed as a couple mostly over the phone. The second verse is about how we would go see the same movie at the same time like it was a date, even though we were living in separate cities.
"I think there’s something cosmic about this one. I wrote the music before our relationship started. I wasn't in love at all then, I was just writing about love and what it'd be like to be in love again. Two years later I actually fell in love again, and that’s what it took to finish the song."
