Three Hearts

Album: Three Hearts (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Alex Clare's Three Hearts album was recorded in London and Los Angeles. It acts as the follow-up to The Lateness of the Hour, which shifted half a million copies. Speaking about the LP, Clare said: "The new music definitely represents the big changes in my life. The Lateness of the Hour was a very cathartic album; I was getting a lot of things off my chest. But the new record is very much an album of thanksgiving; of gratitude that things have worked out pretty sweetly for me."
  • The title track was inspired by a visit to the doctor with Clare's wife after finding out she was pregnant. "They checked for a pulse and it was like, 'wow, my wife has two heart beats!,' the singer recalled to The Independent. "It just blew my mind. I got to the studio and wrote the song in a day."
