In this week of Valentine’s Day, EMBRACE have released the title track from their forthcoming album, LOVE IS A BASIC NEED, which follows recent releases THE FINISH LINE, WAKE UP CALL and NEVER, all taken from the new album, released on 2 March 2018 through Cooking Vinyl.

Available as an instant grat download with pre-orders of the new album, LOVE IS A BASIC NEED is one of the most heartfelt songs on the record. It’s classic EMBRACE, with the track building to an epic and poignant choir-backed chorus of, “You’re everything I’m never gonna be / Only love is a basic need”. The video, which reveals a powerful studio performance of the track, portrays perfectly the emotive impact of the song.

20 years into their recording career, EMBRACE is making an epic and emphatic return with their seventh studio album. With three previous Number One albums, six Top 10 singles, sold out arena shows and over two million album sales behind them, EMBRACE returned triumphantly three years ago with their Top 5 self-titled LP. Already hailed as a return to classic EMBRACE, the new album was recorded in 2017 at their own Magnetic North Studio and produced by the band’s Richard McNamara. With tracks such as the emotive string-laden ballads THE FINISH LINE and ALL THAT REMAINS and the instant WAKE UP CALL, the album sees EMBRACE return to the classic sound that first made us first fall in love with them.

The album’s overriding theme is one surrounding love, and Danny says: “Most people remember to eat, breathe and drink, but too many of us forget about love until it’s too late. The album is about the realisation that without food or water or shelter you die, but the same is also true of love. We set out to make an album where every song on it would stand up against the best songs we’ve ever written, and I’m pretty confident we’ve done just that.”

A trailer for the album is available to watch here and exclusive signed items and special bundles are available through the Official Embrace store here: https://embrace.tmstor.es/
