She Fell In Love With Silence single

press release

earMUSIC announces the second radio single

She Fell In Love With Silence is the second single to be taken from self-titled debut album from Lostboy! A.K.A Jim Kerr, the musical alter-ego of the legendary Simple Minds singer/songwriter.

Produced by Jez Coad (Simple Minds last 2 albums) and featuring Charlie Jones on bass (Robert Plant, Page & Plant, Goldfrapp) alongside long-time Simple Minds drummer Mel Gaynor, She Fell in Love With Silence is an electro-tinged, Joy Division-esque Pop masterpiece.

The track is taken from recently released and critically acclaimed Lostboy! A.K.A Jim Kerr album, which was supported by a hugely successful sell-out club tour across UK and Europe. It showcases a new musical alter ego for Jim, whilst retaining strong links with his 40-million selling, 33-year career with Simple Minds. It is all about big melodic themes, turbo charged rhythms and guitars that shine.

Track Listing:
1: She Fell in Love With Silence - Radio Edit (3:30)
2: She Fell in Love With Silence - Full version (4:31)
3: She Fell in Love With Silence - Simon Hayward Remix (4:54)
4: She Fell in Love With Silence - Farfletched Remix (for Heist Productions) (3:52)

Jim says about the track: "She Fell in Love With Silence With Silence involves the shattered emotions of a victim of domestic abuse as she pauses to question how to make changes in life. Far from being overburdened with its subject She Fell in Love With Silence bounces along with a searing melody that delights and somehow projects the feeling that 'the blows will stop'."

James "Jim" Kerr is the founder, songwriter and voice of Simple Minds, one of the most influential British bands to emerge from the Post-Punk revolution of 1978. After their "independent" early years, the band developed into stadium stars, enjoying worldwide chart success with a raft of genre-defining singles including Don't You (Forget About Me), Alive And Kicking and Mandela Day. Bands including Stereophonics, Cardigans, and Kasabian regularly cite Simple Minds as their formative influence.
