White Lies release deluxe version of ‘Friends’

White Lies
have today announced the release of a deluxe version of latest album ‘Friends’ featuring 4 new tracks titled ‘Friends’, ‘Give A Sign’, ‘What I Need’ and ‘Where Do I Go?’. The band, who have just completed a headline tour of North America & are about to embark on their UK tour can now announce additional European dates for March & April including shows in Moscow & St Petersburg.

Says band member Charles Cave;We wrote nearly two-dozen songs in the year leading up to the recording of ‘Friends’. Harry and myself worked every day through the seasons even after we had enough material for a double album. Songs like ‘Don’t Fall’ and ‘Come On’ wouldn’t have existed had we stopped any sooner. In the studio we whittled the list down to fourteen, and then only at the very final moment did we decide which ten would make the album. So these four we are releasing now aren’t B-sides. They’re songs which, perhaps even given a different time or mood, could have sat comfortably on the album. The title track ‘Friends’ – perhaps notable in its absence from the album – is the most ‘out-there’ piece of music we’ve recorded, and ‘What I Need’ is certainly the fastest! We’re so thrilled to share these with our fans. We think they stand up with everything on ‘Friends’ and we anticipate people to feel the same way.”

‘Friends’ was recorded in Bryan Ferry’s private studio in London’s Olympia and was self-produced by the band. White Lies enlisted the help of an expert team including Grammy Award-winning engineer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys), David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs) on mixing duties and long-term collaborator Ed Buller who contributed additional production. The fourteen-track deluxe album ‘Friends’ is now available on digital download and streaming formats.
