Minimalist Pop Group Share First Single Since Sophomore LP ‘Cry’ Available Now Via Partisan
The first to follow the release of their acclaimed sophomore album, Cry late of last year, Cigarettes After Sex have returned with their latest single, “You’re All I Want.” The new single chronicles the passion formed and found in the flourishing of a new love. Continuing their emblematic sound enveloped in romantic, melancholic euphoria, “You’re All I Want” is a pristine follow up from where Cry left off, but while still building towards a newfound vigor.
“Recorded in the summer of 2017 during the sessions for our second album, Cry. The initial takes of the song were finished in the courtyard of the house we were staying at in Mallorca, late in the evening, right as a thunderstorm was rushing in over us. Almost 3 years later, having just moved to LA, I finally wrote the lyrics & they ended up telling a story I saw as a fantasy or dream involving my girlfriend & I. Sort of reversing our roles & retelling the way we met, while imagining what a sweet future might look like together…” – Greg Gonzalez
