New Hope Club - comprising of members Blake Richardson, George Smith and Reece Bibby - have released their new single 'Worse.'
The single is produced by The Monsters and Strangerz, who have worked with artists including Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez and Camila Cabello. Additionally, New Hope Club co-wrote 'Worse' with James Alan Ghaleb, who has worked with artists including Troye Sivan, Charlie Puth and The Jonas Brothers.
'Worse' has an incredibly upbeat sound to it, and showcases the talented trio's talents, both with regard to their vocals and the use of a strongly-driven guitar sound. The catchy chorus in particular is bound to have you wanting to replay the track over and over! Lyrically, this track is heart-breaking in its nature, describing the pain of seeing someone moving on after a relationship.
To coincide with the release of the single, New Hope Club unveiled the official music video for the single, which was directed by Bailee Madison. The music video features several characters from hit TV series 'Wizards of Waverly Place,' along with additional guest appearances from Maddie Ziegler, Meg Donnelly, Robyn Lively and Bart Johnson. The storyline follows a love that's on the rocks and sees Blake, George and Reece performing in a variety of different eras.
"We had the storyline and visuals pictured in our heads and are so proud to have captured that on video. It was so amazing, fun and different to see New Hope Club 'through the years,' while keeping to a specific storyline. Bailee was great to work with. We knew we could put all our trust in her to bring our vision to life."

'Worse' follows on from the release of their debut self-titled album, which was released earlier this year. The thirteen-track album featured tracks including 'Love Again,' 'Give Me Time,' 'Why Oh Why' and more. Described as 'one of pop's most exciting new bands,' the exceptional album was a culmination of several years of hard work for the band.
