The Struts release new track ‘Another Hit Of Showmanship’

The Struts have today shared a powerhouse new track called ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’, with Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes on guitar. The four-piece’s first new music in over a year, ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’ is available now via Interscope Records/Polydor at all digital retailers HERE.
 
Sparked from a Britpop-leaning riff dreamed up by Struts guitarist Adam Slack, ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’ features a particularly poignant vocal performance from singer Luke Spiller, who perfectly captures the tension between giving in to temptation and rising above. After laying down the initial version of the track, Spiller reached out to Hammond, who’d previously invited the band to open for him on a series of solo shows in 2018.
 
“‘Another Hit of Showmanship’ reminds me of being at a club night called Ramshackle years ago at the O2 Academy in Bristol, where they’d play bands like The Libertines and Razorlight and Scissor Sisters, and of course The Strokes,” says Spiller. “I hit up Albert out of the blue and told him, ‘We’ve got this song, and I’m so excited to see what you would do with it.’ As soon as he got his hands on it, he took it to a whole different level — it really just shows why he’s so brilliant at what he does.”
 
Graced with Hammond’s melodic but blistering guitar work, ‘Another Hit of Showmanship’ finds The Struts working again with Jon Levine, who co-produced their 2018 second album YOUNG & DANGEROUS (including the album’s US hit single ‘Body Talks’).
