Sorry have shared their new single and video, ‘Key To The City’

"It’s about trying your hardest to retain control when you know you’re exposed," Asha explains.

Sorry have shared their new single and video, ‘Key To The City’.

It’s the latest cut from their upcoming second album ‘Anywhere But Here’, set to arrive on 7th October via Domino

The band’s Asha Lorenz says: “‘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. 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.”

They add: “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.”

Recorded in Bristol, produced by the band’s Louis O’Bryen, Asha Lorenz, and Ali Chant with Portishead’s Adrian Utley, ‘Anywhere But Here’ follows up on 2020’s debut album ‘925’ and last year’s ‘Twixtustwain’ EP.
