White Lies cover Kanye West for new single

Band set to release 'Farewell To The Fairground'

White Lies will release a new single, ‘Farewell To The Fairground’, on March 23.

The song is taken from the band’s recent Number One album, ‘To Lose My Life…’, and will come backed by their cover version of Kanye West‘s ‘Love Lockdown’ – originally recorded for BBC Radio 1.

An M83 remix of ‘Nothing To Give’ will also be included as a B-side.


The band are currently on the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour and will play on the same bill as The Cure, Franz Ferdinand and Crystal Castles at the NME Big Gig at the London O2 Arena on February 26.
