The English alternative rock band Embrace have just released a new single “The Finish Line” from their new studio album titled Love Is A Basic Need out on March, 9.
Love Is A Basic Need is the seventh album released by the band. They made their debut in 1988 when they unveiled the EP titled The Good Will Out. Embrace have abandoned the electronic style that characterized the band’s latest self-titled album to return to the classic style of their previous studio albums.
Speaking about the new album the frontman Danny McNamara said:“Most people remember to eat, breathe and drink, but too many of us forget about love until it’s too late. The album is about the realisation that without food or water or shelter you die, but the same is also true of love. We set out to make an album where every song on it would stand up against the best songs we’ve ever written, and I’m pretty confident we’ve done just that.”
“The Finish Line” is a very emotional and well executed love ballad. The background choirs create a romantic and sweet atmosphere.
