HAERTS Announce "New Compassion (Deluxe)" Out June 21st
HAERTS have announced New Compassion (Deluxe).The June 21 release will feature 7 revamped versions of songs from their hauntingly-transparent sophomore full-length, including acoustic versions of "Your Love" (which can be heard now below) "New Compassion" and "In This Time" alongside four tracks recorded live at Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles - "The Way," "The Creek," "Fighter" and "Healing."
New Compassion began as Nini Fabi and Benny Gebert's first therapeutic steps after their split from Columbia Records following the release of their debut full-length. Filled with the sudden feeling of falling and the anxieties that accompany a shift in life, HAERTS - who had previously received praise from NPR, New York Times, Pitchfork, NOISEY, and Billboard, and saw the band secure festival slots at Coachella, Governor's Ball, Bonnaroo, and Austin City Limits - struggled with the crippling fear of losing everything. Choosing busy hands over lingering sorrows, the band set out to fill the void they felt through writing, recording and self-producing an album that echoes the path they took to create it, freely create something, regardless of outcome, leaving New York City for the isolation of the Hudson Valley.
The result was a reliable and vulnerable album, fueled by transparent emotions that ripple throughout each listener.
