Alison Mosshart says of the track: “I love doing collaborations with bands I love, getting to dive in and explore another artist’s work. When Mikey sent me Hey Lover and asked if I wanted to sing on it, I was stoked. From first listen I wanted to hear it again and again. What I love about this song is that I’ve had this realistic lyrical conversation many times. We’ve all had this conversation many times. But it’s never sounded so beautiful. Usually it’s more of a gutter punk song. A lot of screaming and breaking things. Mini Mansions make foul play sound elegant. What a modern/old school music video, you know? My role in this video took approximately an hour (modern), 2 cigarettes and half a bottle of wine (old school). I am quite pleased with the results.”
Mini Mansions will embark on U.S. tour this Spring that will kick off atBrooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 30 and take them to U.S. cities including DC, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and more. All dates can be found below.
