Listen: The Dears unveil new single ‘I Know What You’re Thinking And It’s Awful’

'Lovers Rock' is set for release on May 15

Montreal quintet The Dears have shared a dark, unsettling new single called “I Know What You’re Thinking And It’s Awful.”

“This is a song that came in rather suddenly,” the band’s Murray Lightburn explains. “I woke up one morning and there it was, playing in my head. The news story of a manhunt for a couple of teenage kids who were charged with 2nd degree murder played in the background. I finished the song as news broke that two male bodies found were believed to be them. I am not at all saying the song is about this story, only that I was totally obsessed with this story as I wrote this song.”
