Yes you read that right; after 24 years of silence, Everything But The Girl have dropped a brand-new single this week called ‘Nothing Left To Lose’ and it is pretty freakin’ awesome!
It’s the first taste of a whole new 10-track album that they have on the way titled “Fuse” (pre-order here) and it also comes with a beautiful Charlie Di Placido directed music video which was shot in a single continuous take.
“Ironically the finished sound of the new album was the last thing on our mind when we started in March 2021. Of course, we were aware of the pressures of such a long-awaited comeback, so we tried to begin instead in a spirit of open-minded playfulness, uncertain of direction, receptive to invention.
It was exciting. A natural dynamism developed. We spoke in short-hand, and little looks, and co-wrote instinctively. It became more than the sum of our two selves. It just became Everything But The Girl on its own.
After so much time apart professionally, there was both a friction and a natural spark in the studio when we began. However much we underplayed it at the start, it was like a fuse had been lit. And it ended in a kind of coalescence, an emotional fusion. It felt very real and alive.” ~ Everything But The Girl
