EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL – ” Nothing Left to Lose “

Posted: January 10, 2023 in MUSIC

Everything But the Girl are releasing a new album entitled “Fuse”, their first studio album in 24 (!) years, this April. The British pop duo are best known for their infectious 1994 bop “Missing,” and have been sorely missed on the pop airwaves ever since announcing an indefinite hiatus in 2000. Though the pair had stated over a decade ago that they were to never perform together again, their album news comes with  with a fresh single, “Nothing Left to Lose,” which sounds like the sonic equivalent of dissociating on the dance floor. Time indeed does act like a renewing salve; we can’t wait for even more new EBTG

The duo went on an amicable, indefinite hiatus in 2000, choosing to go out on a natural high note. Their re-emergence appears to have come about just as organically: “Ironically the finished sound of the new album was the last thing on our mind when we started in March 2021,” Thorn said in a press release. “Of course, we were aware of the pressures of such a long-awaited comeback, so we tried to begin instead in a spirit of open-minded playfulness, uncertain of the direction, receptive to invention.”

Watt adds: “It was exciting. A natural dynamism developed. We spoke in short-hand, and little looks, and co-wrote instinctively. It became more than the sum of our two selves. It just became Everything But the Girl on its own.”
