New Music Heaven : The Kooks
Ten years after The Kooks achieved international success with their debut album Inside In/Inside Out, and the unstoppable "Naïve," the British band is fully committed to sticking around. Their next release is The Best Of...So Far, a career-spanning album which will feature Kooks classics and fan favorites, as well as two brand new songs.
One of those is "Be Who You Are," which lead singer Luke Pritchard told NME is a reflective, old-school-Kooks tune. “Lyrically, it’s all me looking in the mirror. The songwriting put me back in that time, so I was trying to write a song that I would have written then. It was quite a creative process for me. I was like, ‘What would I have written then, and what kind of style should it be?’"
