Cigarettes After Sex drop dreamy new ballad "Falling In Love"

08 October 2019, 10:54 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Cigarettes After Sex are back with a dreamy new ballad "Falling In Love", lifted from their forthcoming second album Cry.

"Falling In Love" is the second single to be shared from their new record, after August's lead single "Heavenly".

Vocalist Greg Gonzalez says of the new single, "This was one of the few songs where I had the music written before we got to Mallorca. I wrote the melody and chords in my apartment in Brooklyn in 2017. It wasn't until two years later that I finally wrote the lyrics, it was during mixing and we literally had one day left. I wrote and sang the song that night, and in the performance you can hear the exhaustion and emotion of finally finishing this record."

He adds, "My girlfriend and I, our relationship was long distance for so long, so we developed as a couple mostly over the phone. The second verse is about how we would go see the same movie at the same time like it was a date, even though we were living in separate cities.

I think there’s something cosmic about this one. I wrote the music before our relationship started. I wasn't in love at all then, I was just writing about love and what it'd be like to be in love again. Two years later I actually fell in love again, and that’s what it took to finish the song."

Cigarettes After Sex's second album Cry will arrive two years after their self-titled debut album.

Gonzalez adds of the new record, "The sound of this record is completely tied to the location for me. Ultimately, I view this record as a film. It was shot in this stunning, exotic location, and it stitches all these different characters and scenes together, but in the end is really about romance, beauty and sexuality. It’s a very personal telling of what those things mean to me."

"Falling In Love" is out now. Their second album Cry lands 25 October via Partisan. Cigarettes After Sex play London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on 24 March 2020. Find out more.
