Mystery Jets Release New Single History Has Its Eyes On You

Friday, 30 August 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Mystery Jets have released a new single from their upcoming album.

‘A Billion Heartbeats’ is due for release on September 27 via Caroline International, and so far has spawned the singles Hospital Radio and Screwdriver. The third cut, History Has Its Eyes On You, was inspired by the Women’s March in January 2017, and utilises pleasant melodies to contrast with the impactful lyrics.

Vocalist Blaine Harrison said:

“At the time I was away on a writing trip in Iceland, staying in a remote fishing village which was very cut off from civilisation. One afternoon I was out hiking and when I found some phone signal, I saw all these pictures my friends were sharing from the march, not just in the UK but all over the world-it was the largest single-day march in US history.

I felt very emotional and suddenly had this strong sense of the need to return home and be present, to show up. The messages on the placards permeated the lyrics- they were some of the funniest and saddest things I had ever read, many of them written by young girls. What I saw compelled me to try and communicate how important female role models had been not only in my life growing up, but in cultural spaces throughout history.”

Mystery Jets will support their sixth LP with a headline UK tour in November. Tickets are on sale now.
