Editors have returned with a brand new single, news of a new member, and a bit of a sonic reinvention.
The band have dropped a new track, ‘Heart Attack’ – their first since 2019 and a debut for frequent collaborator Blanck Mass, who has joined as a full-time member.
It comes alongside a Felix Green-directed visual, created using AI, which you can check out below.
Frontman Tom Smith explains: “‘Heart Attack’ is a song of obsession, about losing yourself in someone, a love song, a morbid love song.”
Meanwhile, new member Blanck Mass – aka Benjamin John Power – reveals: “Having worked with the band for coming up to five years now, joining Editors seemed more like a natural progression than a decision that had to be made. We know that we work well together, are on a similar page creatively, and are all very close friends. Being part of a ‘creative conglomerate’ is something that I haven’t experienced for a while now so to be part of something that works in that way again is both liberating and exciting in equal measures.”
