"Discover (Why the Love Hurts)" is the first single from the classically influenced pop/rock band Elliot Minor's second album, Solaris. It was released for download in March 2009 via MySpace's School Invasions Tour, in which the band played shows at five different schools in five regions of the United Kingdom during April and May 2009. Citizens were allowed to vote for which schools the band would play in, and received a free download of the song as a result.

Elliot Minor have cited their label's handling of this single as one of the reasons why they left their partnership with Warner Bros.

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Frank Borin, was filmed in December 2008 in Tokyo, Japan; it shows Alex Davies (lead vocals, guitar) singing through a megaphone through the streets and trains of the city, while the rest of the band follow.

Formats[edit]

The song was initially only made available for download through MySpace, but also appears on their second studio album, Solaris.
