HAERTS have released “No Love For The Wild” the fourth track from their hauntingly transparent sophomore album, New Compassion. The highly-anticipated follow-up to their 2014 self-titled record, which featured their breakout hit “Wings” was announced for release October 5 via Arts and Crafts.
“No Love For The Wild” is about a love that is deeply connected yet completely free. It’s the outcry in the moment in which you lose faith in that kind of love and the hope to be proven wrong." – Nini Fabi on “No Love For The Wild”
HAERTS has also announced a string of North American tour dates with a stop in Toronto on December 8. Full tour dates can be found below.
Following a split with Columbia Records after their debut full-length, which gathered praise from NPR, New York Times, Pitchfork, NOISEY, Billboard, and saw the band secure festival slots at Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, HAERTS struggled with the sudden feeling of falling and the anxieties that accompany a shift in life.
The band filled the voids they felt through writing, recording and self-producing New Compassion, an album that echoes the path they took to create it. Nini Fabi and Benny Gebert set out to freely create something, regardless of outcome, leaving New York City for the isolation of the Hudson Valley, choosing busy hands over lingering sorrows.
The rawness in the emotions of New Compassion have already begun to ripple throughout listeners. NYLON, Refinery29, Paste, Seventeen, and BuzzFeed have praised the album’s title track, “New Compassion”. Additionally, Season Kent, the music supervisor for the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, selected “Your Love” as the pivotal track for a powerful montage sequence in Episode 6. With the soundtracks release, the anthemic single, which Noisey described as “raw and honest,” quickly gathered 6 million streams worldwide.
