Lanu - Fall (ft. Megan Washington) (Hint Remix)

“Fall” featuring Megan Washington is the second single from Lanu’s acclaimed album ‘Her 12 Faces’, which came out in March on Tru Thoughts.

Taken from the album, “Fall” is a lush and flowing lament to a relationship in turmoil, with a beautiful lilting melody that brings out the veiled emotive side to singer Megan Washington’s voice. With support from the likes of Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music on the album’s release, this classic sounding song was crying out for a single release and provides the perfect foil for the first single, “Beautiful Trash”, a quirky summery ditty that told of the first flush of romance. The video to “Fall” will be released on the Tru Thoughts YouTube on 27th June to tie in with the single promotion, and it directly continues the theme of the “Beautiful Trash” clip, which has had around 100,000 views in a few months. It is directed once again by Lucy Dyson, whose stunning animation style, developed for this Lanu project, brings added splendour and charm to the song.

The two bonus tracks on this single package will be available on the release date, and are very much worth the wait. The first is a Hint Remix of “Fall”, in which he introduces an intense shifting beat and subtle bassy backdrop, lightening the effect with woozy treble hooks and trills for a unique suspenseful atmosphere. Lanu’s Tru Thoughts label-mate Hint is earning a formidable reputation for his remixes, which have recently been played by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 among other tastemakers. The second bonus is a folky acoustic version of the irresistible first single, “Beautiful Trash”, which heads off in the opposite direction with a beautiful lullaby effect.
