Pale Waves Premieres New Song “Jealousy” on BBC Radio 1
- British alt-rock band Pale Waves, consisting of Heather Baron-Gracie (vocals/rhythm guitar), Ciara Doran (drums), Hugo Silvani (guitar) and Charlie Wood (bass), premiered a new song “Jealousy” on along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming third studio album “Unwanted”, following “Lies”.
It was written by Heather Baron-Gracie and Whakaio Taahi. The video was directed by Vasilisa Forbes.
Heather Baron-Gracie said of the song, “Some may see it as ridiculous, but I love a bit of jealousy – not too much, but just enough… I want jealousy in a relationship because it shows me the person only has eyes for me and me only.”
She told Clara Amfo, “I think the right amount of jealousy is healthy, like I would want my person to, you know, get jealous. I wouldn't want them to just be like, so cool all the time. I'd be like, 'No', you need to make jokes about this.”
- She continued, “I think it was maybe like the third or fourth song that we wrote the third album, and at first, we had the demo. Not everyone was really into it that much, set me and I really pushed for it. And I was like, No, we need to record this properly and we did. And now I would say it's like one off is not a newspaper.”
The new album comprises 13-track, produced by Zakk Cervin. It is set to be released on August 12, 2022.
Heather Baron-Gracie said of the album, “The album dives into feelings that I felt not only needed to be written but I felt like our fans want to hear. Almost everyone has felt like they don’t belong, or has been made to feel like they’re not good enough. That’s a consistent theme that I’m seeing from our fans – that their family doesn’t approve of them, or their friends have disowned them because they’ve come out. So Unwanted had to be honest, provocative and loud. Not only thematically, but in the music as well.”
