Below are the 11 songs which make up the new Hercules & Love Affair album Blue Songs. From the very start of ‘Painted Eyes’, your ears are in for a treat. We have already heard (and seen) second track ‘My House’, and from there each song has plenty of surprises to discover. ‘Boy Blue’ is perhaps the most surprising track of the 11, given it is a slow, acoustic number, not quite in keeping with the ’80s dancehall theme that makes up everything around it. The following track then proceeds to sound like it was taken directly from Sufjan Stevens’ Age of Adz. And ‘Falling’? Well let’s just say the party track of the year is most certainly in the bag. Enjoy…
