All you Need Is Hate
Mantra Recordings

All you Need Is Hate is the track from which The Delgados named their current album 'Hate'. All the tracks on the new album 'Hate' have a dark over-tone to them and this song is no exception. All you Need Is Hate finds Alun Woodward replacing the customary vocalist Emma Polock. The single features an almost fluttering gentle string arrangement, everything about this song carries a very gentle feeling yet the lyrical theme is a celebration of hate. This gives an "oil & water" type - pallet of contradiction, which I think is extremely affective. The single also features a cover of 'Mr Blue Sky' by the Kinks. The Delgados are about to embark on a headline tour around the UK catch them at these venues:
