- LANY Premieres New song “Thru These Tears” on Apple Beats 1
- Los Angeles-based alt-pop band LANY unveiled a new song “Thru These Tears”. The song received its first play during Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.
The track will appear on their upcoming sophomore album "Malibu Nights", which will be released later this year.
Frontman Paul Jason Klein told Zane Lowe about album, "It's bigger than a breakup album. This is just about being human and going through the ups and downs."
The song was finished on January 29th and represents “the worst 45 days of my life.”
Paul Klein said of the song, "I’m so proud of how I walked through that season. I made the absolute most of it. I’m not just a better writer and a better artist, I’m a better person. I feel so much more in touch with who I am and how I think and feel.. It’s been the most productive 45 days of my life."
LANY was formed n 2014 and consists of Paul Jason Klein (lead vocals, keyboards, piano, guitar), Jake Clifford Goss (drums, sampling pad) and Les Priest (synthesizers, keyboards, guitar, backing vocals).
The band debuted with a first EP "Acronyms" in 2014. Thetrio released self-titled album in 2017.
The band said of the song in a statement;
"the beginning of 2018 was crazy and kind of awful but also kind of amazing and i threw myself into an environment to write a song every monday thru friday up until valentine’s day. it was the worst of times, it was the best of times… but actually it was the most special of times. i got to spill my guts, talk my face off, gather myself, and write songs that were honest to a fault and cathartic to a saving degree for my soul.
'thru these tears' is especially important. at the time – i was writing it for me. but now that i’m healed and whole, it’s for you. i am 1 in like 7 billion that have experienced some sort of disappointment or pain. but i know more than anyone that therapy is just talking it out. and if i can put into words what most can’t, and give people something they can sing along to and hear themselves “talk it out” to, then maybe i can do my part in making this world a better place."
