More on the The Struts:
The British rock band who gave the
genre a much-needed shot of personality and attitude with hits like “Could Have Been
Me” and “Body Talks,” return with the new dance-rocker “Fallin’ With Me.” The band’s first
new music since signing with Big Machine Label Group in March, “Fallin’ With Me” finds
The Struts’ magnetic frontman Luke Spiller commanding listeners to join him in the
wonderland that is L.A.’s Sunset Strip. “Meet at the Rainbow, nine forty-five,” he sings.
“Wear something trashy, that’s what I like.”
Produced by Jayson DeZuzio (Imagine Dragons) and written by Spiller with The Struts
guitarist Adam Slack, Joshua Karp, Jesse Thomas, and DeZuzio, “Fallin’ With Me” was
inspired by seemingly endless evenings spent on the Strip.
“The song’s lyrics were written down whilst on numerous nights out with someone that I
was seeing at the time,” Spiller says. “We always kept meeting at the same place on the
Sunset Strip and after a while I had a collection of phrases and lines that all had a certain
feel to them.”
The most evocative is the chorus lyric: “Are you fa-fa-fa-fallin’ with me?” Spiller sings,
dramatically delivering the query with a staccato flourish as Slack, drummer Gethin
Davies, and bassist Jed Elliot help turn it into a decadent come-on.
“The chorus was intended to be a really heartfelt ballad, but once the music had been
recorded it took the vocal delivery to another place entirely,” Spiller says. “Fa-fa-fa-fallin’
was just me joking around and having a laugh, but it quickly became a crucial part of
setting the tone of the song.”
Formed in Derby, England, in 2012, The Struts have earned a reputation as a must-see
live band. They’ve opened for the Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters, played festivals like
Lollapalooza and Governors Ball, and headlined their own globe-spanning tours,
mesmerizing fans with their onstage swagger and musicianship and Spiller’s unbridled
energy. In 2020, the group released the album Strange Days, featuring collabs with
Robbie Williams, Tom Morello, and Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen. The Struts,
with 300 million U.S. artist streams, recently returned from yet another triumphant U.K.
tour where they debuted “Fallin’ With Me” for sold-out audiences.
“Fallin’ With Me’ is something that The Struts have never done before. We've done a lot
of straight-up rock, but this feels different,” Spiller says. “The response we have been
getting while performing it live has been electric, so I'm excited for everyone to hear the
