Cold War Kids have announced their excellent new single, “Somewhere,“ available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
“I love this song,” says Cold War Kids’ Nathan Willett. “It’s very uplifting, but it has a sadness to it, a rockiness that’s almost feminine and soulful. The line, I knew you were crazy/The night you shaved your head, my wife had this long, long hair and then shaved her head really short. Sometimes when you’re writing, little things pop up and you think, is that going to make sense? That’s to me the great thing about writing when you can do something that’s very much based on a real thing but can be interpreted however by the listener
The single is accompanied by an official visualizer, shot by acclaimed filmmaker Mezzy (Lil Peep: Everybody’s Everything, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboy Carti), who has teamed up with the band to shoot visuals for all 8 tracks on the album, including a compelling official music video for album opening “Who’s Gonna Love Me Now”, and two separate cuts for the song “You Already Know”.
Somewhere” heralds the eagerly awaited release of NEW AGE NORMS 2, the second installment of a three-album trilogy begun with last year’s acclaimed NEW AGE NORMS 1. Produced and mixed by GRAMMY® Award-winner Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs) and written by all five members of Cold War Kids, NEW AGE NORMS 2 arrives via CWKTWO/AWAL on Friday, August 21; pre-orders are available now.
