Along with the biggest hits of their entire career, the band’s new album Best Of will include two new songs, one of which — “You Are Entering The Human Heart” — has already been released.
The band is also the hero of the new documentary Fall To Pieces. The upcoming film directed by Ben Lowe will tell the “untold story” of the band, which formed in London in 2002. Its name was inspired by the title of Razorlight’s 2006 single “Before I Fall To Pieces”.
Speaking about his decision to reconcile after 11 years away from the movie trailer, Burrows says, “If I don’t, I think I’ll probably think about it until the end of time. I don’t know… the last Johnny I knew was Johnny [in] 2009. Today it seems incredibly surreal to me — I have no idea what to expect.”
In a review of “Fall To Pieces,” NME wrote, “Borrell and Burroughs’ love-hate relationship is at the center of the film. In many ways, it’s no different from Matt and Luke Goss’ fateful bromance in the 2019 Bros documentary After The Screaming Stops, and at times it’s almost as cringe-worthy and David Brent-like.
“However, when Borrell and Burrows finally reunite after 11 years of silence, it’s a really touching moment. Everyone admits to past insecurities, and they finally clarify the situation.”
