After releasing their highly anticipated fifth album ‘Faith’ last week, Manchester-born noir-pop duo Hurts have today unveiled a deeply personal visual for one of the album’’s standout tracks, ‘All I Have To Give’.
Channeling the song’s exposed, emotional nature, ‘All I Have To Give’ finds vocalist Theo Hutchcraft reckoning with his own reflection in the dank recesses of a public bathroom. As the track’s emotional subject matter progresses, Hutchcraft is seen to be bleeding, before masked figures begin to take everything from the scene before stepping off a set, continuing the sentiment of the track despite breaking the fourth wall.
This emotionally raw sincerity flows throughout ‘Faith’, an album born out of crisis. While multi-instrumentalist Adam Anderson has written about his battles with mental illness in the past, sharing his experiences of anxiety and depression in an open letter in 2017, early sessions for the album were punctuated by vocalist Theo Hutchcraft’s own experience of demons that left him unsure as to whether or not the band would continue.
“I was physically and mentally absolutely exhausted,” he says, of the period following the band’s last tour in 2018. “To the point where I was at breaking point. I had to stop and not do anything for a while because I couldn’t think, I couldn’t focus, or anything. And I didn’t know what the future held really. I didn’t know if we’d make another album again.”
Formed in Manchester, Hurts are a band known for a diverse, contemporary sound that references a multitude of mediums. The duo, comprised of Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson, have made their mark globally, winning multiple awards and selling millions of records without ever compromising their need to innovate. Today, that innovation is as apparent as ever as they release ‘Faith’; their most complete album in a decade - a record of truth, honesty and authenticity.
