Tune of the Week 29/07/2013: The Naked and Famous – Hearts Like Ours (Updated with new video)

TNAF bannerThere was only ever going to be one choice for me, for this week’s Tune of the Week. I absolutely adored The Naked and Famous‘ album ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’, and I loved seeing them live.

Over the past while, on Instagram, the band have been giving hints that their new album was almost ready and just last week posted the words ‘Hearts Like Ours’ with the caption “New song. #album2 #watchthisspace”.

Well, we didn’t have to wait long, ‘Hearts Like Ours’, is the track track we’ve heard from the New Zealanders’ second album ‘In Rolling Waves’ which will be out on September 13th was recorded in Los Angeles. The album was produced by Thom Rogers and Aaron Shortt from the band and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (NIN, M83). ‘Hearts Like Ours’ continues where ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’ left off and has been on constant rotation since I heard it last week.

TNAF are kicking off touring again in San Diego in September and make their way to Ireland & UK later on this year. Catch them at:
