Mystery Jets will release their new album A Billion Heartbeats on September 27th and today they’ve shared another preview, this one entitled History Has Its Eyes On You.
Blaine Harrison has also given another detailed break down of a new song, on this occasion saying:
“At the time I was away on a writing trip in Iceland, staying in a remote fishing village which was very cut off from civilisation. One afternoon I was out hiking and when I found some phone signal, I saw all these pictures my friends were sharing from the march, not just in the UK but all over the world-it was the largest single-day march in US history.”
“I felt very emotional and suddenly had this strong sense of the need to return home and be present, to show up. The messages on the placards permeated the lyrics – they were some of the funniest and saddest things I had ever read, many of them written by young girls.”
“What I saw compelled me to try and communicate how important female role models had been not only in my life growing up, but in cultural spaces throughout history.”
