Ten Fé today share Twist Your Arm, the lead single from their debut album Hit The Light which will be released on February 3rd 2017 via SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS].
We came to Ewan with what is basically an old, bluesy-type tune and Ewan took it in a Weatherall / Primal Scream / Screamadelica direction, which was fine by us cos that was why we wanted to work with him! And he preserved enough of the original vibe for it to still feel kind of rootsy.
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.
