It's from new album, American Band

Drive-By Truckers have shared a new song, “What It Means”, from their forthcoming album, American Band.

The album was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium with longtime producer/engineer David Barbe. The band have already previewed one new song “Surrender Under Protest” on NPR.

Talking about “What It Means”, Patterson Hood said that it’s “a song I wrote a couple of years ago protesting the Ferguson decision and the Trayvon Martin killing. Unfortunately, the song is still timely today. I hope and pray that one day it won’t be.”

The tracklisting for American Band is:

Ramon Casiano
Darkened Flags on the Cusp of Dawn
Surrender Under Protest
Guns of Umpqua
Filthy and Fried
When the Sun Don’t Shine
