Summer festival appearances + Album launch show announced
Debut album ‘GAME PLAY’ due November 2022
Rising Reading based indie-rock outfit Third Lung return with a brand new release ‘Lo-hi’, lifted from their forthcoming debut album ‘GAME PLAY’ due this November.
THIRD LUNG were all set to begin recording the 10 songs prepared for the album. A couple of days away and having just completed Pre Production, Producer Michael Smith RYP (Wolf Alice, Anteros) suggested that the album needed one more track. He said the album needed a ‘Sometimes you can’t make it on your own’ U2.
The seed was planted! Tom began writing and brought what he had to the band the next day. The four, who have been together for over 5 years, put their minds to creating what they believe is one of their strongest tracks to date.
They says: “Lo-hi speaks to the struggles and battles one person can go through. Sometimes finding themselves alone not knowing how to move forward. Until, they find the courage to ask and faith in their friends and loved ones to utter the 3 most beautiful words, I Need Help. One of life’s most encouraging yet hardest lessons to learn is to trust the people closest to you, with you.”
This was reflected during the track’s journey from rehearsal room to Mastering suite at Metropolis Studios, London. 17 years after first recording an EP with a former outfit, Cams and Tom would return to the powerhouse where they once recorded under the label The New Black (Jack Stevens & Pete Hatfield) working alongside producer Adrian Hall (Tori Amos, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, The Black Eyed Peas). Having always kept in touch with Adrian over the years Tom, Cam’s and the team decided to reach out to Adrian to mix the single version of Lo-hi.
