Montréal quintet The Dears, led by husband & wife duo Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak, have premiered the single “Heart Of An Animal”. It is the second single from their upcoming album Lovers Rock.
Lovers Rock will arrive digitally on May 15 via Dangerbird Records along with vinyl pre-orders. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the vinyl edition will arrive at retail outlets worldwide on August 21. Pre-order Lovers Rock here.
Discussing “Heart Of An Animal,” Lightburn says, “I’ve been trying to get ‘Heart Of An Animal’ on a Dears album for a very long time, but for whatever reason it just never fit. Now it kicks off and sets the overall tone of Lovers Rock. It was by far the most difficult song to sing for me, as it hits the very top of my range.”
Yanchak adds, “It’s a tender, psychedelic runaway train. You should be left wondering where this album is going and let me tell you… it just gets weirder from here.”
