THE YEARNING’s debut full-length will be here really soon, and to whet our appetites, Joe Moore and his gang are giving us a song as an advance digital single; “If I Can’t Have You”. The song is a summary of many of the constants that have caught our attention up to now: delicious melodies with fifties tendencies, prodigious productions along the lines of the masters like Phil Spector, Jack Nietzsche and Burt Bacharach, and lyrics obsessed with the two sides of sentimental relationships. And they do it again, with that opening drum line that’s so characteristic, and those castanets adorned with heavenly choruses, evoking some of the best girl groups in history, like THE RONETTES and THE VELVELETTES. An absolute delicacy.

As a gift with this release, a version of THE NOLANS’ “Gotta Pull Myself Together”, exclusive for this digital single, in which Maddie Dobie’s voice once again dazzles us in that highly addictive chorus, while the guitar arrangement takes us to the limit. It’s a teaser that heightens, if it is even possible, our impatience to get our hands on this first album that has us so excited, and that we’ve been dreaming about so much.

Track Name: If I Can't Have You
If I can’t see you tomorrow
Then I can’t see you again
‘Cause I know I could never give you up if I wanted to
So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you

If I can’t kiss you on Friday
Then I can’t kiss you tonight
‘Cause I know if I kissed you I would always stay untrue
So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you

If I can’t have you forever
Then I can’t see you tonight
‘Cause I know I could never let you go to someone new
So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you
So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you
So I’ll just keep on seeing him, if I can’t have you
If I can’t have you
If I can’t have you
If I can’t have you
Track Name: Gotta Pull Myself Together
Now that I know
Why did I doubt you
I let you go
Now I'm without you
Thought I was cool
Imagination
I was the fool
Fell to temptation

But you won't see me cry
'Cause its no good
Since you said goodbye

And now honey I gotta stop
Gotta start pickin' up
Gotta pull myself together
Honey, I'm breakin' up
Now that we ain't makin' up
Just gotta pull myself together

I was so sure
It wouldn't upset me
So I closed the door
Why did you let me
I lost control
Out for sensation
I'm in the cold
Sad situation

I try hard not to say
It hurt so bad
Since you went away

Baby I want you
Baby I need you

But you won't see me cry
'Cause its no good
Since you said goodbye
