HAERTS have announced their new album titled, New Compassion, the highly-anticipated follow-up to their 2014 self-titled record which will be released on October 5th via Arts and Crafts. The sophomore album is a story of transformation and unwavering persistence. But that isn’t where it started. With eleven songs that each take a unique look at love, New Compassion began as a self-therapeutic manner of recovering from an unfathomable loss.
Following their split with Columbia Records after the release of their 2014 self-titled record, which featured their breakout hit “Wings”, HAERTS struggled with the sudden feeling of falling and the anxieties that accompany a shift in life. The band left New York City for the isolation of the Hudson Valley, choosing busy hands over lingering sorrows.
The longtime kindred souls – Nini Fabi and Benny Gebert – set out to freely create something, regardless of outcome, unsure if anyone would ever hear the finished product. They filled the voids they felt through writing, recording and self-producing New Compassion, an album that echoes the path they took to create it.
