Ahead of this week’s release of their eighth studio album, rock icons The Used are delivering an energetic, catchy and captivating new song for fans today with “Cathedral Bell.” The new song is now available on all digital stores and outlets. The beautiful tarot card artwork was created by artist Drew Merritt (@drewmerritt).
“A door creaks, then swings shut. The music creeps in like goosebumps down your neck: “In the sensory cave that you made / I lie awake,” sings The Used frontman Bert McCracken in the new song.
“It reminds me of being a little kid,” McCracken said over the phone in an exclusive interview with NYLON. “I had a really hard time with sleeping when I was younger. I just never wanted to go to bed, and when I did, I could never sleep. It just reminds me of being young and in the dark and up way past my bedtime.”
Heartwork marks the return of John Feldmann to The Used family as he is producing the album and also the head of A&R at Big Noise.
“I couldn’t be more honored or grateful to have one of my favorite bands of all time at my record label! They are one of the most influential bands of the last 20 years and we are making a career-defining album at the minute,” shares Feldmann. “They are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen and Bert is quite possibly the best singer I’ve ever worked with. This has been a dream of mine since I met them in 2001.”
