They also unveiled their album’s first single “Missed Connection.”
The Head and the Heart announced that their next LP, Living Mirage, is due out May 17 via Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records. They also dropped the first single from the LP, “Missed Connection,” on Thursday (March 14).
"Missed Connection" comes with a lyric video for the palpitating, genre-fluid track, which they said began as a remembrance of how singer and guitarist Jon Russell met his girlfriend -- but then morphed into a metaphor of how the six-member band serendipitously met at an open-mic night 10 years ago in Seattle.
In a press release, drummer Tyler Williams stated that the song is unlike anything they’ve ever done before. Williams attributed the new sounds to their love of pop and hip-hop production, stating, “A lot of the beats on that song are quicker, and there are high-hats that were never in our music before.”
