“‘White Lies’ was the first song we wrote after I got divorced,” the duo’s Jess Wolfe explained in a statement. “It’s the laying in bed at night, cycling through the last 10 years of your life, wondering what was, what could be and why it wasn’t. It’s the moment right after you rip the band-aid off and are frantically pedaling backwards, trying to hold on to what’s left, if anything at all. ‘I just want to lie with you,’ the double meaning and double-edged sword; if only one last moment together could save you from a broken heart.”
Second Nature, which was produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile, arrives on April 8. Lucius previously shared the single ‘Next To Normal’.
