Lost Under Heaven (who were formerly known mainly by their initials LUH) have announced a new album, Love Hates What You Become, and shared a video for its new single, “For the Wild.” You’ll have to wait awhile to hear the full album, as Love Hates What You Become isn’t due out until January 18, 2019 via Mute. But you can watch the “For the Wild” video below. Also below are the album’s tracklist and cover art. The band have also announced some U.S. tour dates, which are below too.

The album includes “Bunny’s Blues,” which the band shared back in May via its bloody video (it was one of our Songs of the Week) and “Breath of Light,” a new song they shared back in March (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).

The duo is Ellery James Roberts (the ex-WU LYF frontman) and Ebony Hoorn. They released their debut album, Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing, back in 2016 via Mute.

Love Hates What You Become is the follow-up to the duo’s 2016 debut, Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing. It was written in Roberts’ native Manchester and was then recorded in Los Angeles with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Swans, Sigur Rós), who brought Swans drummer Thor Harris into the mix, who plays on the album.

“We were without a drummer or a real band,” explains Roberts in a press release. “I just concentrated on writing the songs rather than making a sound. We turned up in LA with that as our starting point, this collection of guitar and piano demos that I’d sent through.”

Jamie Allan directed the “For the Wild” video, which was shot on hi-8 video and 16mm film and filmed over a series of sunrises and sunsets.

Roberts had this to say about the video in the press release: “It’s based off a short story I have been writing about an absurd preacher, whose lack of a charismatic populist message leaves him without a congregation. Alone and increasingly desperate to communicate his self-appointed duty, he ventures out into nature, surrendering to the wild, until eventually he embraces his and humanity’s insignificance in the cosmos.”
