After their highly-praised 2022 LP 'Unwanted', Pale Waves have now announced their plans for their fourth studio album 'Smitten', which is set to be released on the 20th September via Dirty Hit.

The new full-length is being previewed by the lead single 'Perfume', which comes accompanied by a stunning new video.

Speaking about the new record, the band's Heather Baron-Gracie said, “I found myself writing about not just a certain time period, but my whole life, from years ago. When I fall in love, I fall deep, and it’s interesting to me that you can feel so fascinated and smitten with someone and then they can become a total stranger. So I feel like Smitten really summarised perfectly what I felt for others at a certain point.”

While adding about the new track, "’Perfume’ is the perfect introduction into the new world we’ve created. It's queer, feminine and romantic and it encapsulates the essence of Smitten."
