Pale Waves Announce Fourth Album

June 12th, 2024

UK’s Pale Waves announce their upcoming fourth studio album Smitten, will be released on September 20th via Dirty Hit. The announcement arrived with the lead single “Perfume” which premiered as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record. Watch the video HERE.

The album was written between the US and UK over a two-year period. “‘Perfume’ is the perfect introduction into the new world we’ve created,” shares lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie. “It’s queer, feminine and romantic and it encapsulates the essence of ‘Smitten.'”

Heather adds, “I found myself writing about not just a certain time period, but my whole life, from years ago. “When I fall in love, I fall deep, and it’s interesting to me that you can feel so fascinated and smitten with someone and then they can become a total stranger. So, I feel like ‘Smitten’ really summarized perfectly what I felt for others at a certain point.”

Pale Waves are currently playing US dates as support for PVRIS. Find the tour dates HERE
