The War on Drugs Sound Extremely '80s in "I Don't Live Here Anymore" Video
The title track from the band's new album features Lucius
Published Sep 15, 2021The War on Drugs are preparing to release their album I Don't Live Here Anymore, and now they've shared a video for the title track.
Aside from quoting Bob Dylan's "Shelter from the Storm" in the first line, song is extremely '80s-sounding, with watery guitar lines (à la "Lovers in a Dangerous Time") and massive gated reverb on the drums. Lucius swing by to contribute backup vocals — and they also appear in the music video, which shows frontman Adam Granduciel hanging out on the beach, in the studio and on the train before he and the whole band perform the song on a rooftop. It was directed by Emmett Malloy.
Listen to the anthemic song below. I Don't Live Here Anymore is out on October 29 through Atlantic.
