Hot off the release of their hugely acclaimed fourth album, Pretty Vicious, platinum-selling rock band The Struts are back with a new track that takes a refreshingly mellow detour for the irrepressibly flamboyant four-piece.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart) is an achingly sincere song that ruminates on handling a heart with care when caution is all you have to offer. The track showcases the ever-evolving songwriting brilliance of the quartet, with gorgeous instrumentation and a wonderful vocal performance from singer Luke Spiller.
“’How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)’ is a brutally honest song that takes me right back to that moment when the phrase came to me,” Spiller explains. “It has a Rod Stewart vibe to it, which is definitely something we haven’t done before. I also adore the backing vocal section, which has a Fleetwood Mac feel that’s never a bad thing. The lyric was laboured over for a long time, which I hope people will appreciate.”

The single is the first of two new tracks that The Struts will be releasing this month, together forming a brand new digital double A-side single, as a gift for their fans who have made last year’s album Pretty Vicious such a worldwide success. The title track of that album, which is already a huge hit on Alternative Radio in the US, has been the #1 Most Requested song on the Sirius XM Alternative Countdown for the past three weeks.
The Struts hit the road this month as they support Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators in Australia and Queens of the Stone Age in Canada, before continuing their headlining tour in the US, with a string of festival shows to come. Additionally, Luke Spiller is set to perform at the 2024 Love Rocks benefit show at the Beacon Theatre in NYC on March 7th, alongside The Black Keys, Hozier, Nile Rogers, Tom Morello, and more.
This summer the band will be back in the UK for a highly-anticipated Main Stage performance at Download Festival. When they played there a few years ago, they attracted an enormous crowd and were one of the hottest draws of the whole weekend. Expect an even more iconic performance in 2024!
