Hold Me Like A Heaven

Album: Resistance Is Futile (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist and lyricist Nicky Wire explained the story behind this song:

    "This track sprung from reading Lines on a Young Lady's Photograph Album by Philip Larkin, and his poem Aubade as well. It was the last lyric written for the record and I knew it had to be special. It's got one of my favorite ever lines, which is 'what is the future of the future. When memory fades and gets boarded up.'

    We've long been obsessed with writing something like Ashes to Ashes; I think this is the closest we'll ever get."
  • The video sees actress Sarah Sayuri reprising her role in the "International Blue" clip as a mysterious photographer.
