Embrace are set to release new album 'Love Is A Basic Need' on March 2nd.
It's 20 years since the band's debut album 'The Good Will Out', but Embrace aren't intent on resting on their catalogue.
New album 'Love Is A Basic Need' contains a number of firsts for the band, including a new duet.
Lead single 'Never' is out now, and it finds Danny McNamara and Kerri Watt partnering on vocals, a love song with a dark twist.
“It's one of my favourite lyrics. We always heard it as a natural duet between two people who have very different takes on the same fraught situation – fighting for a toxic relationship and never giving up because they can't imagine being with anyone else. It sounds like a love song but "I will never be the one who backs out" in this context almost feels like a threat. When Kerri agreed to sing on it we thought we'd really caught something.”
