Deepening the mystery of their current chapter, Lord Huron unveil a new song entitled “Long Lost” today. It stands out as the title track of their anxiously awaited fourth full-length album, LONG LOST, out May 21st via Whispering Pines Studios Inc./Republic Records. Listen to "Long Lost" HERE & watch the lyric video HERE.
Pre-order Long Lost HERE.
The new tune hinges on cinematic strings, dusty tambourine, and soft acoustic guitar before transmitting a dreamy vocal. It nods to Spaghetti Western soundtracks and fifties pop in equal measure, as though Roy Orbison and Ennio Morricone finally got around to collaborating. Meanwhile, the accompanying music video further opens the window onto the expanding world of the album.
Lord Huron recently released album track “Mine Forever” to critical acclaim. In addition to gathering 1 million-plus streams, it also garnered plugs from Rolling Stone, Spin, Brooklyn Vegan, and more. The music video featured blurred faces of performers from Whispering Pines Studio and added more clues to the mystery behind Long Lost. Check out the video for “Mine Forever” Here!
Long Lost will also include previously-released single "Not Dead Yet." The track has already hit Top 5 at AAA Radio (the band’s fastest rise at radio to date), racked up 1.5 million Spotify streams and 500K video views. Additionally, the guys hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! for a show-stopping television debut performance of “Not Dead Yet.” Watch it HERE. Spin claimed, “they sharpened their teeth,” while UPROXX described the track as “driving.” In addition to plugs from Stereogum and more, Brooklyn Vegan touted it among “Our Favorite Songs of the Week.” See full track list for Long Lost below.
The final episode of the band’s Alive From Whispering Pines streaming series will broadcast on April 29th, with more surprises to come. Fans can purchase tickets to each episode, a season pass to all four shows, and exclusive merch at http://www.lordhuron.com.
During its first episode, viewers were introduced to Mr. Tubbs Tarbell, fell under the spell of commercials that may very well be lost tapes from the past, and were treated to some incredible performances by Lord Huron. The band played some old songs including “Meet Me In The Woods” (view video here) and provided a sneak peek at some new songs. The episode also featured a hotline where fans could call in and ask Mr. Tarbell questions and request songs from the band. Episode 2 included additional cryptic clues, more beautiful performances from Lord Huron (including “The World Ender” and “Frozen Pines”) and even the secret world premiere of “Mine Forever.” Episode 3 included a long awaited performance of “The Night We Met,” “The Balancers Eye,” and fan favorite “Ghost on The Shore.” In case you missed the performances of “The Night We Met” Watch HERE.
To help answer all the lingering questions, Tubbs has put out an official letter into the multi-verse from Whispering Pines Studios describing the mythical tale of recording Long Lost with Lord Huron and the origins of its cosmic music. Read the full letter HERE.
What could be in store for the band next? Only time will tell…As Tubbs says: “As ever, friends, may you live until you die”
