'Do You Feel the Same?' is the first single from Hercules & Love Affair's forthcoming album - 'The Feast of the Broken Heart'.

With 2011's Blue Songs running the gamut from full-blown disco and jacking house to the more experimental, Hercules & Love Affair's new album 'The Feast Of The Broken Heart' sees another musical reinvention from ringmaster Andy Butler - delivered by an impeccable new line up.

The ever-revolving collective led house music's resurgence with club anthem 'Blind' in 2008 (Pitchfork's record of the year), and 2014's line up is another roll call of exceptionally talented vocalists. BRITS nominee John Grant's ability for translating hardship into elegance is writ large on 'I Try To Talk To You' and 'Liberty'; Rouge Mary, whose deep, spiritual voice is hewn from a gospel education; Belgian singer Gustaph whose counter tenor takes lead on the single 'Do You Feel The Same?' and smoky voiced virtuoso Krystle Warren, who was introduced to Butler by Grant, and sings the provocative 'My Offence'.

Andy Butler comments: "I wanted nasty basslines, stormy, bleary-eyed sounds, fiery, rough, tough and ragged old school house productions that sounded almost techno. I didn't want polite, I wanted aggressive."

This aesthetic coupled with tales of emotional triumph makes for something tough yet soulful. Meaningful house music that IS pop music and can speak to the most musically adroit of tastes.

Kicking off proceedings is the dancefloor single 'Do You Feel The Same?', a jacking pop anthem released 14th April, with B-sides 'Raid' (a late night dancefloor banger replete with sirens) and 'Working Miracles' (a sample led journey into the more experimental side of Hercules & Love Affair).

'The Feast Of The Broken Heart' is co-produced by Ha-Ze Factory and industrial stalwart Mark Pistel and released on Moshi Moshi on May 26th 2014.

The track features 2014 Brit Nominee John Grant, whose solo albums Queen Of Denmark and Pale Green Ghosts featured at the top of many end-of-year polls. His voice and lyrical ability for translating hardship into elegance provided the genesis for the album The Feast Of The Broken Heart.

The video proves a fitting accompaniment to Grant's lyrical contribution. "He tackled the story of becoming HIV positive" says Hercules' Andy Butler "and while I mentioned to him that he did not need to go there if he was not comfortable, in that beautifully punky, spirited and courageous way he has about him, he told me that was what the song was going to be about. What came of it is an elegant song featuring John pouring his heart out."

Commenting on the video Butler said - "Collaboration for me is always the most fulfilling when there is an emotional connection with my collaborator. David and I share a great sensitivity, a playful innocence and an optimism around sexuality - this is evident in the video for "I Try To Talk To You." When I viewed the treatment, I was brought to tears by the poignancy of the piece. This sensitivity coupled with his intuition for moving images has created one of the most stimulating video pieces for Hercules ever," says Butler.

John Grant too thought the video "beautifully choreographed and HOT, although I've yet to see a relationship go THAT smoothly."

"I Try To Talk To You" is the second single from the album "The Feast Of The Broken Heart' out now on Moshi Moshi.
