Everyone’s favorite dream-pop band, LANY, released the first song of their new album cycle today. Premiering “thru these tears,” on Beats1 with Zane Lowe, lead singer Paul Klein spoke about past relationships, love and finally getting over the person that changes everything.
“thru these tears” is the first release since LANY’s debut self-titled album last year. After a series of successful festival performances, the band teased the new “moon era” with a series of videos, tweets and more.

“damn it feels like forever –
hi everyone, this is paul. i write these old school things called newsletters to update our perfect fanbase on life and what is going on in LANY. i’ll never stop doing it because LANY is my everything and all i care about.
the beginning of 2018 was crazy and kind of awful but also kind of amazing and i threw myself into an environment to write a song every monday thru friday up until valentine’s day. it was the worst of times, it was the best of times… but actually it was the most special of times. i got to spill my guts, talk my face off, gather myself, and write songs that were honest to a fault and cathartic to a saving degree for my soul.
“thru these tears” is especially important. at the time – i was writing it for me. but now that i’m healed and whole, it’s for you. i am 1 in like 7 billion that have experienced some sort of disappointment or pain. but i know more than anyone that therapy is just talking it out. and if i can put into words what most can’t, and give people something they can sing along to and hear themselves “talk it out” to, then maybe i can do my part in making this world a better place.
i love you so much, and this is just the beginning.
