Editors have shared a video for ’Hallelujah (So Low)’, the latest song from forthcoming album ‘Violence’.
The song was premiered as Annie Mac's Hottest Record on Radio 1 last night (Wednesday 21st February), while the clip was directed by the band’s longtime collaborator, Rahi Rezvani.
Frontman Tom Smith says: “I wrote the words to Hallelujah (So Low) when I got back from a trip with Oxfam, visiting refugee camps in Northern Greece. It was obviously an incredibly moving trip, seeing people living in dust, surviving only on the help of others was very moving.
“Musically the track hung on the relationship between the acoustic guitar and the drum machine, that was part of the track from my demo, it had something special very early on... then when Justin came up with his outrageous guitar riff we knew we had a winner.
“It’s the most rock we've ever been and it’s exhilarating. I think the video attempts to capture this intensity, both in the track and in us as a live band.”
‘Violence’ will be released on 9th March via Play It Again Sam, with the band also set to support The Cure at BST Hyde Park, London on 7th July.

However quick it felt for, well, everyone - for Aussie popster Toni Watson her journey from the busking unknown was really somethin’ else.
