The War On Drugs have shared a teaser for new music on their social media pages – scroll down to watch it now.
The US band last released a new studio album with 2017’s A Deeper Understanding but have spent the last year providing updates on its follow-up.
Now, it seems their return is imminent. A short video teaser was shared by the group yesterday (July 18) and features a piano-led snippet of music. In the accompanying visuals, frontman Adam Granduciel is seen driving a truck, pulling up by a field and then walking into the field and beginning to play his guitar.
Watch it below now.
Earlier this month, the band reportedly filmed a new music video in a barn in the US. “Fun film shoot in our barn today for an upcoming album release by Adam Granduciel, and his band, The War On Drugs,” the barn owner wrote in a Facebook post that was subsequently shared on Reddit.
Last November, Granduciel shared an update on the band’s next record. “In March I would’ve told you it was 80 per cent done, and now looking back it was actually 40 per cent done,” he said at the time. “Some songs have been reimagined since, which has been a blessing. Some songs have had just one more layer of mud removed from them.”
In Uncut’s 8/10 review of The War On Drugs’ A Deeper Understanding, we said: “Even though much of the album may guide us through more long, dark nights of the soul, there’s a new brightness at the edges here, and more warmth, too.”
