UK/Irish trio New Rules have shared their debut mixtape Go The Distance. The eight-track collection includes six brand-new offerings in addition to the previously released title track and longtime fan-favorite single “Pasta.” The release is also accompanied by an official lyric video for focus track “Love You Like That,” which is streaming now on the band’s official YouTube channel. Go The Distance is available now on all streaming platforms now via Elektra Records/Parlophone.
The group expanded on the mixtape, “Go The Distance is basically eight stories from the last year of our lives. We feel like it’s a new chapter for New Rules and shows a lot of growth from where we started together musically. We hope everyone enjoys the details and can hear a bit of themselves in every track.”
In April, the mixtape was heralded by title track “Go The Distance,” produced by Sir Nolan [Selena Gomez, Tate McRae, Shawn Mendes] and co-produced and co-written with Kieran Shudall of Circa Waves. The single – which bounces between a slick bass line, handclaps, and glossy synths – was crowned a “perfect track” by The Honey Pop and is accompanied by an official lyric video on the band’s official YouTube channel.
In celebration of the release, New Rules have embarked on their intimate “New Songs For New People” debut U.S. headline shows, which kicked off last night with a sold-out performance at New York City’s Mercury Lounge. The trio will hit The Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles for another sold-out show on June 6th, before wrapping up the run at Chicago, IL’s Subterranean on June 10th.

In the fall, the group announced their signing to Elektra Records/Parlophone and shared new singles “Really Wanna Dance With You” and “Cheers.” The tracks racked up praise, with Sweety High celebrating the “catchy chorus and … beat that’s impossible to resist,” of “Really Wanna Dance With You” while Wonderland Magazine attested “New Rules are set to become the next big thing.” Entirely written and co-produced by the band, the group’s 2022 name songs EP ignited a flurry of activity on TikTok.
