The band’s latest album, A Billion Heartbeats, is now available following the album’s postponement in September 2019 due to lead singer Blaine Harrison’s ill health.

A Billion Heartbeats as an album achieves a balance of passion, fear and hope. Amid the colourful cavalcade of rich harmonies, heavy guitars and rallying cries, the album’s essential message, about personal responsibility, and the power in becoming engaged. In a sense, it’s not just their ‘state of the nation’ record but their ‘state of a generation’ record too.

Blaine Harrison was living as a property guardian right around the corner from Trafalgar Square where he found himself witness to an entire year of protests in 2017. It was from here that Mystery Jets’ sixth long-player, A Billion Heartbeats, was born. “This album wasn’t about making pointed opinions,” says Blaine. “It was about being a mirror for what’s going on, reflecting back the way people are feeling.”

We increasingly hear from musicians that music should be an escape these days; that there’s enough suffering in the world, enough misery on the news, without writings songs about it too. A Billion Heartbeats makes all that sound like a bit of a cop-out. These are songs of protest that get the heart racing in joy; high on hope, and serious in their message. Proof, basically, that music speaks louder than words.
