Huey Lewis And The News Drop First New Single In A Decade With "Her Love Is Killing Me"
Few voices or sounds in rock and roll can transport you back in time as fast as Huey Lewis And The News. Now the GRAMMY-winning group have returned with a new single, "Her Love Is Killing Me," their first new song in 10 years.
The snappy song harkens back to the signature pop-rock sonics of the band's '80s megahits, adding a coat of soul to their catchy sound with touches of of their most recent recording effort, 2010's Stax Records tribute album Soulsville.
"Her Love Is Killing Me" is also the first song off Huey Lewis And The News' forthcoming album. The LP title has not been revealed, but its release is expected in 2020 and will mark the band's first album of original songs since 2001's Plan B.
“We were in no hurry with these songs,” Lewis said in a statement. “The more we road-tested them the tighter they got, and I think we ended up with some of our best work.”
Just last year, Lewis was forced to cancel the band's 40-date tour due to hearing loss and subsequent diagnosis of Meniere’s disease.
After five career GRAMMY nominations, Huey Lewis And The News won their first career GRAMMY in 1985 for Best Music Video, Long Form for "Heart Of Rock 'n' Roll at the 28th GRAMMY Awards.
