BILLY HOWERDEL (A PERFECT CIRCLE) - Releases “Selfish Hearts”; What Normal Was Arrives June 10th

Billy Howerdel, fulfilling his promise to release a new song per week in the lead-up to the arrival of his solo album, “What Normal Was” (June 10th, Alchemy Recordings/Rise Records/BMG), has debuted the song “Selfish Hearts”.

“No matter how many different track listings I tried, ‘Selfish Hearts’ always felt like the right song to welcome listeners to 'What Normal Was'”, said Howerdel of the track. “Sometimes a chord change can give me chills. ‘Selfish Hearts’ does that for me”.

The A Perfect Circle co-founder and guitar player has shared four songs from the eagerly-awaited album, with the three previously released singles being “Beautiful Mistake”, “Poison Flowers” (watch the video here) and “Free and Weightless”.

“What Normal Was” is one of 2022’s most highly-anticipated rock records. Guitar World described the music as “treading a line between Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails” Loudwire said Howerdel “paints a haunting visual with a dark palette” and Consequence said “trip hop and electronic influences peer through… beneath ethereal guitar passages”.
