The Gaslight Anthem’s first single in 9 years was appropriately known as “Positive Charge.” Nearly precisely three months later, the relatively recently reunited New Jersey band are positively charging into an album rollout for the primary time in almost a decade.
“Historical past Books” that includes Bruce Springsteen arrives as a single from Historical past Books, due out on October 27.
“When Bruce Springsteen mentioned I ought to write a duet for us, I feel my head exploded,” lead singer Brian Fallon mentioned in an announcement concerning the title monitor. “It’s going to by no means get outdated to me that one of many best songwriters on this planet, and one in all my hero’s voices, will eternally be captured in a music I wrote at a small picket desk, in October, in New Jersey.”
Directed by Kelsey Hunter Ayres, the accompanying video captures small-town Americana — driving down backroads and dancing in cornfields. “I’m conserving time / Sooner or later goes by / I attempt to dwell until the following one,” Springsteen sings in his signature gravelly tone. “However these historical past books / Filled with haunted seems / From folks I don’t need to see once more.”
“None of us needed to make a really somber or severe report displaying how a lot we’ve matured,” Fallon added in his assertion. “We’ve all modified and grown and discovered a lot, however the total temper was a sense of pleasure to be again collectively and making music which means one thing to us.”
