With the release of their debut album Hit The Light less than two weeks away, London duo Ten Fé today unveil one last track, Another Way. Hit The Light which will be released on February 3rd 2017 via SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS]. Check back for our review soon!
We wrote this song in the height of summer in the Black Country and recorded in the depths of winter in Berlin. Like ‘Elodie’ it was influenced a lot by the films we were watching at the time – bleak, expansive portrayals of America. We kept returning to the image of a character stood out in the deserted street of a small town, singing up to the silhouette of a girl in the window.
Named Hit The Light after the big theme of the album: coming from dark into light; an act of renewal. The album is the result of 4 long years’ of work, which has led them from busking on the London Underground, through a bedroom in Birmingham, to eventually recording in Berlin withwith Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture). The depth of their relationship, creative and personal, has seen them through. It’s no coincidence the name of this band means “Have faith”.
Hit The Light will be available through SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS] on CD, Digital and the LP version is a double vinyl LP.
The band have also announced new tour dates to celebrate the album’s release. Dates can be found below.
