The War on Drugs Would Rather Rise Above With ‘Change’

The War On Drugs dropped “Change” off their upcoming record I Don’t Live Here Anymore, which is out this Friday, October 29.

Mirroring the gritty, raspy vocal pull of Bruce Springsteen, lead singer Adam Granduciel pleads for a grasp of understanding: “I been living on the run, ’cause I can’t find / The thing that holds and binds us time / I’m out here dying in the heat / Oh, what am I to find?” Contrary to Blind Melon’s desperate call for a new direction in their own “Change,” The War On Drugs would rather rise above to avoid a steer in the course of love, chastening their own existence at the close of the track: “Maybe I was born too late for this lonely freedom fight / Maybe I was born in the wrong way / Maybe born on the wrong day.”

 

I Don’t Live Here Anymore is the band’s first studio album in over four years. The War on Drugs will follow its release with a North American tour, hitting the largest venues they’ve ever played, including a headlining performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Tickets are on sale now.
