The Weight of Your Love
, Editors' fourth studio album and the first to feature new members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams is, according to lead singer and songwriter Tom Smith, "a band record, a musical record, a rock record with a foot in that alt-rock / americana world".
Inspired by Scott Litt’s work with REM amongst others and built around a live performance approach to recording, the album contains the most strident and direct Editors songs to date. With a lyrical fascination with love in all its myriad forms, "whether romantic or break-up or creepy or even stalkey love" (Tom again) and recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studio by producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, etc), The Weight of Your Love
represents a new chapter for the band in more than one way.
