Listen to The Knocks and Dolores Forever New “LOVER” Single

The Knocks, a prolific Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling DJ/producer duo, have teamed up with Dolores Forever, a London-based band comprised of songwriters Hannah Wilson and Julia Fabrin, to release their latest dance single, “LOVER.” The song is a celebration of Pride, self-love, and empowerment, perfectly timed for a summer of fun.

The Knocks and Dolores Forever – “LOVER”

Dolores Forever shared their excitement about the track, saying, “’Lover’ is really an expression of confidence, for when you’re done crying on the dancefloor and just want to have a great time. We wanted it to sound as if Fleetwood Mac and glitter had a baby, and The Knocks really brought that.” The result is a song that exudes both confidence and joy, making it a perfect addition to any summer playlist.

The Knocks added: “We are fans of Dolores Forever and have loved their vibe for a while now. As with lots of The Knocks’ collaborations, we try to bring alternative-leaning artists into a different space and we were thrilled that they were down to experiment with us.  We are so happy with how the song turned out and think it’s the perfect blend of both of our sounds. We hope the warm, retro feel is the soundtrack to all of our fans’ summers.”

With its warm, feel-good sound, “LOVER” is poised to become a favorable soundtrack. The infectious energy and uplifting message make it an ideal anthem for anyone looking to celebrate life and love. Whether you’re dancing the night away or enjoying a sunny day, “LOVER” promises to add a touch of magic to your summer.

When Dolores Forever performed their 2024 single “Someday Best,” a spirited anthem about living your best, carefree life, their fans went wild for one lyric in particular: “Shut up and eat the pasta!” Now emblazoned across Dolores Forever T-shirts, it’s a line that perfectly captures the infectiously playful, unapologetic feminist energy.

Dolores Forever met at a house party in 2018 and instantly became friends. This friendship has underpinned the band’s whirlwind rise since releasing their first single “Kilimanjaro” in 2021. In 2022, they released two back-to-back EPs (Baby Teeth and Conversations With Strangers), and, despite having played just three live shows, were invited to perform at Glastonbury. They sold out their first headline show at Omeara and released a third EP, “I Love You But You’re Making Me Sad.” Now, they’re ready to release their hotly anticipated debut album, “It’s Nothing,” on September 27th.
