The Last Dinner Party have shared their third single, titled ‘My Lady Of Mercy’ – watch the band’s video for the new track below.

The song follows the hotly-tipped band’s debut singles ‘Nothing Matters’ and ‘Sinner’, and was produced by James Ford.

“’My Lady Of Mercy’ is about being a girl,” the band said in a statement. “A girl looking up at a painting of Joan of Arc for the first time and thinking that she looks so brave and so beautiful that she wants to kiss her. And maybe she also wants to kiss the girl who stands next to her in the school choir.

“We are expanding the world of The Last Dinner Party to encompass a darker, heavier
atmosphere. The lyrics explore the anguish of a teenage crush that can only be described
through the bloody, carnal language of religious experience, as the soundworld takes cues from Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey and Roxy Music.”

Watch the video for the song, directed by The Last Dinner Party alongside Harv Frost and Dora Paphides, below.

The band began a UK tour in Blackpool last night (October 8) and continue tonight in Glasgow. They have also announced a new London gig at the Roundhouse for February 2024, which will follow a European tour in support of Hozier later this year.
