'It Hurts' follows January's earth-shaking lead single '(pls) set me on fire'. It brings with it a call to switch up our worldview and reassess the ways in which we judge ourselves - all in a flurry of race-to-the-finish-line intensity.
Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds explains:
"It Hurts came to me in a dream. Literally. Melody, chords, and fully-formulated chorus were all part of a dream that, thankfully, remained with me when I woke up. I was hiding under the duvet at 3AM, singing it into my phone, much to the bewilderment of my girlfriend.
Lyrically, It Hurts is about perseverance, and the importance of reframing failure as a fruitful and, in fact, pivotal route to progress. Society teaches us we should avoid and criticise failure, when defeat and honest mistakes can actually present us with insights that light our way forward.
In reality, we should be taught that simply to try makes us more than enough.”
