Sorry have dropped a new single from their upcoming LP Anywhere But Here. Following previous offerings ‘There’s So Many People That Want to Be Loved’ and ‘Let the Lights On’, ‘Key to the City’ arrives with an accompanying music video directed by FLASHA. Listen and watch below.
“‘Key to the City’ is a song that stemmed from a very specific situation in my life but that I hope has a more universal resonance,” Asha Lorenz explained in a press release. “It’s meant as a kind of tender ‘fuck you’ at the dying moment of a relationship you don’t necessarily want to end – when it’s hard to reconcile feelings of anger, jealousy, resentment etc. with the undeniable love you still have for that person. That crossover of pride and vulnerability led me to an image of a deer in the headlights. It’s about trying your hardest to retain control when you know you’re exposed emotionally, sexually, spiritually, everything. In the nude of the headlights, in the nude of someone’s love.”
She continued: “The song came together after the original recording session and stemmed from Louis experimenting with new tunings to give us a bit of a push. This one has a Nick Drake feel. We wanted it to sound cinematic and lonely.”
Anywhere But Here lands on October 7 via Domino.
