After announcing a new album was in the works, Huey Lewis & The News have released “Her Love Is Killin’ Me,” their first piece of new music since the release of their 2001 album, Plan B.

Embedded below, “Her Love Is Killin’ Me” is the lead single off the band’s still untitled tenth studio album. When the album was first announced back in January, Lewis said in a statement to Rolling Stone, “We’re very excited about our new album, and honestly feel that it’s among our best work – we cannot wait to get it out to fans!”

Huey Lewis & The News were forced to cancel their tour in 2018 after Lewis’ sudden hearing loss and issues with Meniere’s disease.  In an interview with Today shortly after the tour’s cancelation, Lewis said, “I haven’t come to grips with the fact that I may never sing again. I’m still hoping I’m gonna get better. They say a positive attitude is important.”

Lewis would later detail to the San Francisco Chronicle the moment of his hearing loss taking place just before a show in Dallas.  He and his News bandmates were at the hotel when his hearing suddenly changed and compared it to “standing next to a jet engine.” Lewis has been on a constant search for treatment ever since.
