True Love

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Ed Macfarlane (from the NME): "That was the first song we wrote for the new record and it was the hardest - you're like 'How do I write music again/ How do we want to sound.'"
  • The disco-inspired number features a guest appearance by Alex Frankel from Holy Ghost. Macfarlane told Spinner UK: "We asked Alex to play clavinet on the song 'True Love.' He's an amazing keyboard player and that track has sort of a funky, Talking Heads-style clavichord line."
