The XCERTS have released their new single Blame, another glimpse into their upcoming album LEARNING HOW TO LIVE AND LET GO. The tracks features guest vocals from Laura-Mary Carter from Blood Red Shoes.

Speaking on the track, frontman Murray explained; “Blame is the most quintessential XCERTS song on the new record,” says frontman Murray Macleod. “It was important for us to look back but push the boundaries of what, in essence, is quite a simple pop song. The majority of the new record was written in the studio, but we crafted this one in the rehearsal room and I feel like you can hear the ‘three-piece’ chemistry and urgency within the recording. It’s a song about accountability and no longer looking for a scapegoat when things go wrong, and realising I’ve really hurt people in the past with my thoughtlessness. I was once told ‘if you can’t spot the dickhead in the room, it’s probably you’. I guess it’s our first (hyper) self-aware song lyrically.”

LEARNING HOW TO LIVE AND LET GO is due for release on 18th August 2023 via UNFD, available to pre-order HERE.
