The War On Drugs is back with their first new material since taking home the Grammy for Best Rock Album in 2018. “I Don’t Live Here Anymore” is the title track from their new album due October 29 on Atlantic Records.
According to a recent press release, the project was recorded over a span of three years in seven different studios. The process culminated with multiple sessions in New York and Los Angeles. The album was produced by band leader Adam Granduciel and Shawn Everett and tackles the daunting process of having resilience in the face of despair.
The War On Drugs teams up with superstars Lucius on backing vocals on “I Don’t Live Here Anymore”. Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig are known for collaborating with everyone from Roger Water’s on his recent tour, to Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Jackson Brown, Mavis Staples, and a host of others. They also perform as part of their own four-piece indie-pop act out of L.A. and are worth checking out.
On Tour in 2022
The band will be on tour in support of the album in 2022. As of now, they have shows booked from January to July. Highlights include shows at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville as well as their first-ever headlining performance at Madison Square Garden.
