Last year, Kamran Khan – better known as Fake Laugh – released his excellent debut album, and now he’s back with a new track.
‘Better For Me’ is one half of a new two-track 7” that also includes ‘On Loop’, and is set to be released through Headcount Recordson on 30th April. It’s been produced by Theo Verney, who also worked closely with Kamran on his debut album.
Speaking of the new track, Kamran said: “The song entertains the idea that it might be favourable to ride solo. It’s obvious to think of it in the context of a romance, but it could be about any kind of relationship really. I think there’s also some acknowledgement that deciding to go it alone is a bit of a lazy cop-out. It kind of celebrates and laments loneliness at the same time”.
Fake Laugh is also set to support Girl Ray on their upcoming tour of the UK. Tickets are on sale now.
Kamran talked us through his debut at the time of its release. Catch up here.
