Mystery Jets have shared ‘History Has Its Eyes On You’, a song inspired by 2017's Women's March

Mystery Jets have shared their new track, ‘History Has Its Eyes On You’.

It’s the third to be taken from their upcoming sixth studio album ‘A Billion Heartbeats’, which will be released on 27th September via Caroline International.

“The inspiration for this song came from the Women’s March in January 2017,” singer Blaine Harrison explains. “At the time I was away on a writing trip in Iceland, staying in a remote fishing village which was very cut off from civilisation. One afternoon I was out hiking and when I found some phone signal, I saw all these pictures my friends were sharing from the march, not just in the UK but all over the world - it was the largest single-day march in US history.”

“I felt very emotional and suddenly had this strong sense of the need to return home and be present, to show up,” he continues. “The messages on the placards permeated the lyrics - they were some of the funniest and saddest things I had ever read, many of them written by young girls. What I saw compelled me to try and communicate how important female role models had been not only in my life growing up, but in cultural spaces throughout history.”

Check out ‘History Has Its Eyes On You’ below, and catch the band on tour this November.

At the back end of last year, Mystery Jets were all prepped to drop their brand new album. Then they weren’t. Six months later and a band-member down, they’re back on track (pretty much) and ready to go.
