Three years after In Dream, British band Editors have announced the release of a new album. Violence is out on March 9th via Play It Again Sam. We already shared “Magazine”; “Hallelujah (So Low)” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Rahi Rezvani.
Tom Smith says ”I wrote the words to Hallelujah (So Low) when I got back from a trip with Oxfam, visiting refugee camps in Northern Greece. It was obviously an incredibly moving trip, seeing people living in dust, surviving only on the help of others was very moving. Musically the track hung on the relationship between the acoustic guitar and the drum machine, that was part of the track from my demo, it had something special very early on…then when Justin came up with his outrageous guitar riff we knew we had a winner. Its the most rock weve ever been and its exhilarating. I think the video attempts to capture this intensity, both in the track and in us as a live band“.
