White Lies name second album

'Ritual' set for January release

White Lies have told NME their forthcoming second album will be called ‘Ritual’.

The album, produced by Alan Moulder, is set for release on January 17.

“It’s about love with a bit of religion in there as well – a lot of religious imagery,” frontman Harry McVeigh explained. “Things like that, they’re all rituals. Things you associate with your day-to-day life, but they’re also habits.”
