The Lone Bellow will release a new album, Love songs for losers, on November 4 via Dualtone Music Group. The Brooklyn-born, Nashville-based trio also shared single “Honey.”
Love songs for losers follows The Lone Bellow’s 2020 album, Half Moon Light. That of the group Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist and Kanene Donhey Pipkin crafted the new LP’s 11 tracks in a church before decamping to the late Roy Orbison’s former Nashville residence to break the record in eight weeks. After working with acclaimed producers like The National’s Aaron Dessner and eight-time Grammy winner Dave Cobb, the trio decided to direct Love songs for losers themselves, marking their first self-production.
“One of the reasons we went with Love songs for losers like the title of the album is that I always thought of myself as a loser in love – I was never able to figure it all out,” Williams said of the new LP. “The songs are about bad relationships and wonderful relationships and everything in between, sometimes with a lot of levity. This is us just trying to encapsulate the full range of experiences we all go through as people. ‘Human being.
The Lone Bellow previously released Love songs for losers “Gold” track in July with Fall 2022 tour dates. Today’s album announcement arrived with another preview.
“‘Honey’ came in thinking how my wife doesn’t like to be called ‘honey’ or ‘baby’ – she thinks it’s lazy, it always rubs her the wrong way,” Williams noted on the new single. “It turned into a song about wanting sometimes to go back to when we were first in love, when everything was crazy and exciting and we were about to ruin each other’s lives at any moment. .”
