Laang war et roueg ëm Hurts. Mat der Single “Voices” huet den Duo am Mee endlech en neien Album ugekënnegt. Virun enger Woch ass “Faith” dunn erauskomm!

“Et war eng vu mengen däischtersten a schwéierste Perioden a mengem ganze Liewen”, esou beschreift de Sänger Theo Hutchcraft déi lescht Joren. An och den Instrumentalist Adam Anderson huet eng fuerchtbar Zäit hannert sech, an där hie mat mentale Problemer ze kämpfen hat an d’Zukunft vun Hurts – an nach villes méi – op der Kipp stoung. Den Duo huet sech awer zesummegerappt an déi Zwee hu sech géigesäiteg opgepäppelt. Mam Album “Faith” hunn si hir Liewensfreed an d’Léift zu der Musek erëmfonnt.

Ladies and gents, FAITH is out now. I feel proud and I feel happy. Today is a day I really wasn’t sure would come. The early days of making this album were tumultuous and terrifying. Personally, it was one of the darkest, most difficult periods of my life. I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t function and I could barely feel. I didn’t know if there would even be another album. But time moved on, things got easier and slowly I found my way back towards music. Eventually finding great solace and catharsis in it. As I always do. When we started making the album, we knew we wanted to give it everything. We decided to confront our demons, excavate the pain and show you it all. It was difficult, at times impossible, but once it started to come together, we felt like nothing could stop us. We knew we were making something special. Something we were going to be immensely proud of. I genuinely believe that this album is some of the best music we’ve ever made. I’m so proud of us. The fact that we’ve been able to get to this point is really all down to you. Everyone who has supported us along the way, stood by us and encouraged us. The faith you’ve shown in us. We wouldn’t have been able to get here without the journey of the last 10 years. For that I’m eternally grateful. FAITH is a collection of songs written during a personal crisis which is being released into a world in crisis. They are songs about isolation, desperation, pain, doubt, sadness and of course, faith. Songs that sing from the DNA of who we are. Every moment you hear was handled with the utmost care and attention. We’ve lived with and loved these songs for the last 18 months but now they’re yours. I hope you can find comfort and shelter in them like I did. Thank you all for everything. I love you. 🖤

Musikalesch gesinn erënneren Hurts un hir Ufäng, méi genee un den Debut-Album “Happiness”. Waren déi lescht Alben éischter méi frou a positiv, esou ass “Faith” definitiv erëm de Géigendeel: Däischteren an deels mysteriéise Synthiepop mat deem d’Museker déi schwéier Zäit verschaffen, dat geet vu Vertrauensverloscht a Gott an a sech selwer bis hin zu Situatiounen ouni Auswee.

Hurts sinn zeréck! – eng Nouvelle iwwert déi ech mech immens gefreet hunn, virun allem well ech hir Harmonie als Duo an dem Theo seng Stëmm immens gär hunn. Trotzdeem hätten d’Lyrics heiansdo méi konkret kënne sinn an d’Band hätt sech musikalesch e bësse méi traue kënnen. Fir en Debut-Album 2.0 awer op allefalls gelongen.
