Dawes have announced the release of their new album. The Los Angeles-based band’s seventh studio LP, Good Luck With Whatever arrives on Friday, October 2nd.
The new record has been heralded by the release of “Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?” The high-spirited track is joined by an official companion video – watch below…
Good Luck With Whatever marks Dawes’ first release on their new label, Rounder Records, and follows a series of self-released albums including 2013’s Stories Don’t End, 2015’s All Your Favorite Bands, 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die, and 2018’s Passwords.
From its first downbeat, the new LP sees Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith grappling with the expectations of adulthood on a cycle of new songs fuelled by many of the same elements that first earned the band worldwide attention – graceful melodies with kinetic riffs and intricate musical interplay.
“In the past, I’ve definitely been more precious about the way I wanted the songs to sound, but that’s never as fun,” Taylor Goldsmith says. “The music we make is everyone’s mode of expression, and the other guys all have chops that I don’t have and never will. The fact that we’re able to lean on each other and celebrate each other as individuals just makes us so much more excited about getting to play together in this band.”
