As Irish newcomers The Burma prepare to release their debut album next month, the band is sharing a new song on Friday.

The trio is giving Variance an early listen of the rapturous track, titled "Hard to Say," a song which has actually been part of the band's live set for some time and holds a special place in their heart as it is reflective of their early years. 

"We wrote ‘Hard to Say’ in our late teens/early twenties," says the band of the new track, which is premiering today on Variance. "There's youthful angst evident in the lyrics. Our love for this song is demonstrated by the fact that it made it on to our new album, despite being a song from our formative years as a band. It's an explosive song that has never left our live set since the first time we played it.”

The song is bursting with an electric, Foster the People meets Arctic Monkeys energy, as the third official preview of the group's first album Sucker for Stars, which is out Oct. 14.

Hear "Hard to Say" now below and everywhere Friday.
