We Love The City

We Love the City is the third album by British indie rock band Hefner. It was released by Too Pure in two formats in 2000, the standard version and a second version with a disc featuring videos for “I Took Her Love for Granted” and “Good Fruit,” as well as a John Peel session. The entire John Peel session was later released as the album Maida Vale. The album was reissued in 2009. The album features vocals on a number of tracks by Amelia Fletcher, who is the vocalist for a number of bands (Marine Research, Heavenly, Talulah Gosh). This was the first Hefner LP to feature Jack Hayter as a permanent member. Darren Hayman, lead singer and songwriter, has described We Love the City as his “favourite Hefner record”.
