UK 2 x LP pressing. 'The Weight of Your Love' is the follow up to Editors' two consecutive Number One UK albums, 2007's 'An End Has a Start' and 2009's 'In This Light And on This Evening'. Their debut album, 2005's 'The Back Room' has sold over half a million copies in the UK. · This is the first album to feature new members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams, following the departure of founding member Chris Urbanowicz in 2012. It was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville with producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, of Monsters And Men, Kings of Leon) and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arctic Monkeys, the Horrors, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver). Tom Smith has described 'The Weight of Your Love' as 'having a foot in that alt rock / Americana world' and of 'feeling untouchable at times.' Recorded mostly live, it contains their most direct songs to date and also features extra production from Clint Mansell on 'Nothing', rescored from the original to become what Tom and Ed Lay both describe as the 'centerpiece' of the album. Lyrically focused on love songs... that don't adhere to the traditional love song type, the album sees Tom Smith sing in falsetto for the first time on 'What Is This Thing Called Love'.
