LANY release heartfelt new single "if this is the last time"

01 July 2020, 14:38 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

LANY are back with "if this is the last time", a second taster of their forthcoming album Mama's Boy.

"if this is the last time" arrives after May's lead single "good guys", and is a song dedicated to family.

Lead vocalist Paul Klein says of the new track, "I started writing "if this is the last time" towards the end of 2019. It was initially inspired by the inevitable truth that one day my parents aren’t gonna be here anymore... that picking up the phone and calling my mom is actually a luxury that i won’t always have. Moving into 2020 and being thrown into a global pandemic and being faced with a new reality, it became clear to me that finishing and perfecting this song was imperative... that maybe this was a song the world could lean on."

Mama's Boy will be their first LP since 2018's Malibu Nights.

They recorded the album at a studio outside of Nashville over the space of two weeks after their Malibu Nights tour. LANY wrote the album with contributions from songwriters including Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay, Shane McAnally (who contributed to Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour), Sasha Sloan and King Henry, and Adele cowriter Dan Wilson.

"if this is the last time" is out now. LANY's Mama's Boy album is due for release later this year on Polydor.
