The War On Drugs Share Two Previously Unreleased Songs
The War On Drugs have shared two previously unreleased songs, Oceans Of Darkness and Slow Ghost – listen below.
The tracks have been released on a new deluxe edition of the band’s latest album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, originally released last year.
The box set includes the album on both 2LP 180-gram vinyl and cassette, a 7” single featuring the new songs Oceans of Darkness and Slow Ghost, a 16-page booklet with in-studio photos, a 24″ x 36″ poster, six postcards, an embroidered patch. The cassette version also includes Slow Ghost as a bonus track. The set will be limited to just 5,000 copies and is due 30 September via Atlantic Records.
Band leader Adam Granduciel spoke to NME at the time of I Don’t Live Here Anymore‘s initial release about the band’s ever-growing success: “I feel like it takes a second to process everything that gets bigger. We’ll be on tour in Europe playing rock boxes, clubs or theatres and we’ll be like, ‘This is amazing’. Then we’ll have one or two of these massive arena shows. We have our comfortable areas but we’re growing into those big places… We’re trying to find ways to play the music in huge spaces but still be as loose as possible and do the records justice… Even from the first record, people always said, ‘I feel like I can hear these songs in stadiums’. I was like, ‘They’re just home-recorded songs!’ But somewhere along the line it became our reality.”
