It's always heartwarming to hear band dedications. The latest single from Girls is titled "Lawrence," which is supposed to be a gift for Felt frontman Lawrence Hayward. The track dates back to 2008 when Girls frontman Chris Owens was first introduced to the band.
I once wrote this song and wondered what you would sing to it, I could sometimes hear your voice but I didn't dare write down any words. I never thought for a second you would ever hear it, I wondered if you would like it, all that. I called it Lawrence, after you. To send it to you now is incredible for me, I want to show you I'm thankful. You gave me something to love, or in other words you gave me love itself. You took something that can sometimes feel so common and dull and brought it back to life with so much beauty and verse. You gave me happiness, and you still do.
The single is due November 28 in the UK and digitally on December 6 in the U.S. Limited edition heart-shaped vinyl copies will also be available through Turnstile.
