White Lies have released a new video for track ‘Don’t Want To Feel It All’, taken from current album ‘Friends’ released late 2016. The video was directed by Alex Alvarez and shows White Lies during their recent European tour at the Sala Razzmatazz, Barcelona and Sala Marco Aldany in Madrid.

With a nod to 80’s synth pop romanticism, ‘Don’t Want To Feel It All’ holds a melange of tropical sheen and yearning uproars of supercharged melody to a dynamic tempo as frontman Harry Mc’Veigh sings catchy chorus; “I don’t want to feel it all, but know what fuels it. I don’t wanna feel it all, but don’t wanna lose it.”

The ten-track album ‘Friends’ is now available on CD, vinyl, picture disc, digital download and streaming formats, as well as a special box set edition which includes a cassette and four exclusive bonus tracks.

‘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.
