Ny låt med amerikanska indierockbandet Band of Horses

Band of Horses släpper ytterligare en låt från deras kommande album ”Things Are Great” som släpps 4 mars. Låten “Lights” är uppföljaren till Band of Horses förra singel ”Crutch” som också är deras första nr 1 hit på den amerikanska BDS AAA radiolistan.

Sångaren Ben Bridwells texter beskriver en filmisk reflektion på en utekväll med en vän som muterar till vad som känns som ett Law & Order avsnitt, men fallet är faktiskt ett mysterium om vart kärleken tog vägen.
Bridwell säger, “I was with my family at an indoor water park hotel. On my last day there, I was walking down the hall and this guy was like, ‘Ben?’ It happened to be this dude that was producing the film that I was writing the score for. We met up in the family-friendly hotel bar which gets closed down by us at 10:00, at which point we then ended up in the parking lot. We get a little loose – nothing too crazy, but we ended up dodging security guards. Our story then goes on to when I’m back home and someone had broken into my house. With the cops that ended up being around, there were more people turning the lights on us, one way or another. At the parking lot of the hotel, it was the security guards turning them on to check on us out there and at home, it was the lights going on and off with these cops. I’m drawing metaphors here and there from these two stories. Also, things were going poorly for me at that time and that kind of peppers the entire track.”
“More metaphorically,” förklarar Bridwell, “the song was meant to be a bit uplifting and I’m wishing for a better existence in a way. I’m getting over the things that had been going wrong in my life. The lights go on signifying it’s a better day kind of thing.”

”Lights” finns med på bandets sjätte studioalbum och första skivan på mer än fem år. Ljudmässigt är albumet en återgång till deras tidigare sound och den typ av rå etos som ligger bandet varmt om hjärtat.

Det nya albumet Things Are Great släpps 4 mars.
