Pale Waves Release New Single 'Jealousy'

Amidst their extensive U.S. tour opening for5 Seconds of Summer, Pale Waveshave released thesingle and music video for "Jealousy" from their upcoming album Unwanted, out August 12 via Dirty Hit.

Listen to the amped-up, anthemic ode to the obsessive that continues the band'shot streak of worldwide radio premieresby being announced as BBC Radio 1's Hottest Record in the World. Closing out Pride month with a bang, "Jealousy" explores a darker shade of love and jealousy as something that proves devotionwhile effortlessly showcasing the band's chic and stylized approach to alternative rock.

"Some may see it as ridiculous," explains frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie, "but I love a bit of jealousy -not too much, but just enough... I want jealousy in a relationship because it shows me the person only has eyes for me and me only."

"Jealousy" follows the release of album track "Reasons To Live," a euphoric burst of energy premiered by Zane Lowe about finding someone whokeep going, and lead single "Lies" -an angst-fueled, rebellious pop-punk anthem that pairs the crunchy guitars and rhythmic driveof 2000s with the rage of a 90s rock band to speak to lies catching up with someone who has shattered your trust.

Building on Pale Waves' previous album, Who Am I?, which saw Heatherbecoming more personal in her songwriting to open up about her journey of self-discovery and falling in love, Unwanted takes a step further; exploring loss, vanity, anger, jealousy and hopelessness in a style that marks new territory for Pale Waves.

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer ZakkCervini(Blink-182,Halsey, Machine Gun Kelly), Unwantedtaps into darker emotions than ever before while also striking a fresh tone of defianceand reaching out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQIA+ fans around the band. PRESS HERE to pre-order Unwanted."

The album dives into feelings that I felt not only needed to be written but I felt like our fans want to hear," continues Heatheron the themes that inspired Unwanted. "Almost everyone has felt like they don't belong, or has been made to feel like they're not good enough. That's a consistent theme that I'm seeing from our fans -that their family doesn't approve of them, or their friends have disowned them because they've come out.

So Unwanted had to be honest, provocative and loud. Not only thematically, but in the music as well."Currently touring as the official opener on 5 Seconds of Summer's nationwide U.S. amphitheater tour,Pale Waveswill also be playing a string of select headline shows before taking the stage for huge international festival dates.
