The band Boys Like Girls, fronted by Martin Johnson, released their new single “Cry.”

It is a track from their forthcoming studio album “Sunday at Foxwoods.” This upcoming album marks their first new music in 11 years.

A stirring piano-laden ballad, “Cry” evokes raw emotions, and it showcases a refreshing new sound to this band’s artistry. It is evident that they are going in a pleasant more mature direction music-wise.

“You called me up in pieces tonight, tears were fallen from your pretty eyes, terrified you said you needed someone to talk to, life backs you in a corner sometimes,” Johnson sings in the opening verse, instantly luring this listeners in.

The lyrics of “Cry” are conversational but not contrived.

On Friday, October 27, Boys Like Girls will be headlining Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

“Cry” is available on digital service providers by clicking here. It is worth more than just a passing glance, and it garners two thumbs up.
