The War on Drugs are releasing their first new original music in three years for Record Store Day. The band is releasing a new 45 RPM 12-inch single titled “Thinking of a Place,” which will be available tomorrow as a Record Store Day exclusive. Today they’ve shared the title track from the new single, which is a pretty sprawling and epic 11-minute track that heavily uses synths and pretty much just vibes out. (Not unlike the title track from Kurt Vile’s Wakin on a Pretty Daze—Vile used to be a member of the band, not coincidentally.) Listen to the new track below.
The War on Drugs’ most recent album is Lost in the Dream.
