“’Here’s What I Need To Know’ is a song about the moment when you know a relationship is finished – either because you’re over it, or you realize the other person is,” the band explained in a statement. “It’s about how all the details of those moments, like an Aaliyah song on the radio or watching snow fall through a window, become imprinted in your memory as well.”
They continued: “Musically, the first half builds using arpeggiated synths, trance stabs and layers of percussion. For the second half, we sampled a small bit of the end of the chorus, the last two chords and the word “over” to create a loop. Then, like in a French Touch song, we used that loop as the basis for the full beat that comes in to end the song and provide some release.”
Let It Be Blue is due for release on May 6. It was led by the single ‘Storm Around the World’.
