Alongside the biggest hits from their career, the band’s new Best Of album will feature two new songs, one of which – ‘You Are Entering The Human Heart’ – is out now.
The band were also the subject of a new documentary called Fall To Pieces. Directed by Ben Lowe, the film tells the “untold story” of the band, who formed in London in 2002. Its title was inspired by the name of Razorlight’s 2006 single ‘Before I Fall To Pieces’.
Speaking about his decision to reconcile after 11 years away in the film’s trailer, Burrows said: “If I don’t do it, I think I’m gonna probably think about it for the rest of time. I don’t know… the last Johnny I knew was Johnny [in] 2009. It strikes me as mighty surreal today – I’ve go no idea what to expect.”
Reviewing Fall To Pieces, NME wrote: “Borrell and Burrows’ love-hate relationship sits at the centre of the film. In many ways it’s not dissimilar from Matt and Luke Goss’ rocky bromance in 2019 Bros documentary After The Screaming Stops and at times it’s almost as cringe-worthy and David Brent-like.
“However, when Borrell and Burrows do eventually reunite after 11 years of not talking, it’s a genuinely touching moment. Each confesses past insecurities and they finally clear the air.”
