The Naked and Famous have announced a Mar. 9 release date for their forthcoming acoustic collection A Still Heart.
Along with the release date announcement, the New Zealand duo released a stripped-down version of “Girls Like You,” which you can stream below.
The release of A Still Heart follows the duo’s well-received album Simple Forms, while “Girls Like You” follows a recent string of acoustic interpretations the duo has been releasing leading up to their new album, including new versions of Simple Forms single “Higher” and In Rolling Waves track medley “A Still Heart,” which combines that album’s “A Stillness” and “Hearts Like Ours.”
The Naked and Famous are taking the acoustic concept even farther by embarking on an eight-city “Stripped” North American tour this spring.
The change in musical approach seems to be working for the duo, as more and more fans seem to be embracing it.
Listen to “Girls Like You (Stripped)” and the band’s 2012 Daytrotter Session below, and find their tour dates here.
