LISTEN: White Lies Unveil New Single, Announce Album & Tour

White Lies have unveiled a brand new single.

Time to Give is Harry McVeigh and co.’s first new piece of music since 2016’s critically acclaimed Friends album. It’s taken from the January-bound studio album Five, which is due on 1 February via PIAS.

Clocking in at over 7 minutes, Time to Give’s sprawling synth arpeggios mark the first taste of upcoming record Five’s musical direction. If it’s is anything to go by, then the Flood-produced LP may well be one of the trio’s most experimental and complex collections to date.

Speaking of the album, the band say: “This is a milestone record for White Lies. It marks our decade as a band, which has pushed us to expand our sound and reach new territory artistically – it marks the start of a new and exciting chapter for us.”

Stream it below.

The band have also announced an expansive tour slated for the start of 2019, which stops off across the entirety of the UK before kicking off a lengthy European run with shows in Amsterdam, Nijmegen and Brussels.
