Pale Waves Announce New Album Smitten For September 2024 Release, Share New Single & Video “Perfume”

Beloved indie rock band Pale Waves has returned with the announcement of their brand new fourth studio album entitled Smitten. The record is set to arrive later this year on September 20 via Dirty Hit. In celebration of the news, the group has shared their latest single and accompanying music video for “Perfume.”

The visual, in tandem with the song itself, is deeply romantic. “Perfume” pays tribute to the sapphic experience with front woman Heather Baron-Gracie taking a confessional, love struck tone with regards to her vocal delivery and lyricism which are both equally powerful and anthemic in their own right.

Pale Waves are currently on the road supporting PVRIS, having kicked off the summer trek earlier this month with a show in Santa Ana, California on June 1. They are scheduled to perform tonight in Indianapolis, Indiana before visiting Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit before taking a detour and heading up to Toronto for a show on June 19. The tour concludes next month with a concert in Los Angeles, California at The Wiltern on July 12.
