Hurts unveil their stunning video to accompany new single 'Some Kind of Heaven', the first track taken from the forthcoming new album 'Surrender'.
Hurts enlisted renowned director Chino Moya whose previous work includes directing St Vincent's 'Digital Witness' video. Working collaboratively on the video Hurts and Moya created a breath-taking visual, strewn throughout with a delicate 60s hue the video offers a deeper and more abstract insight into the themes of the new single.
Hurts recently announced details of their forthcoming third studio album, 'Surrender' due for release this October through Columbia Records. Hurts wrote and recorded the new album throughout 2014 travelling across the globe to destinations such as Ibiza, New York, Montreux, Sweden and L.A. The band have continued to work alongside Swedish producer Jonas Quant on the new record, whilst also joiningforces with esteemed, Grammy Award winning producers Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers), Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Vampire Weekend) to sculpt the sound of their much anticipated third album.
Hurts' return after two years follows the release of their top 10 sophomore album, "Exile" and No. 1 single, "Under Control" with Calvin Harris and Alesso. Since the band entered the UK album charts in 2010 they've sold over 1.2 million albums and 3 million singles worldwide, as well as over 250,000 tickets across their sold out tours. Hurts are certified Gold in the UK and Austria, 2 x Platinum in Germany and Finland, and Platinum in Poland, Switzerland and Russia.
