As White Lies were working on their new album Five, they became aware that its release would coincide with the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough debut, To Lose My Life. It seemed like the right time to close one circle and open another. Over ten years and four albums, the London trio have quietly become one of the UK's most enduring bands, a cult group who've experienced both mainstream success and diehard fandom, a band who make bombastic, grandiose music about the complications and intimacy of day-to-day existence. It was time to kick off their second decade with a statement of intent. "To Lose My Life was the best possible record we could have made aged 19," says bassist and lyricist Charles Cave. "Five is absolutely the best record we could've made aged 30. Naming the album Five gives it a bit of a glow, like a pillar coming up. It feels like a bookmark."
