Directed by WATTS. From How Do You Love?, due August 9 on Warner.
New video and a new album announcement! Turns out I was correct a couple weeks ago when I guessed the track list.
So How Do You Love? will contain 15 Lydia Night originals. Co-writers include producer Mike Elizondo (with 6 songs), guitarist Genessa Gariano (with 5), former bass player Sage Chavis (3), former drummer Maxx Morando (2), and new drummer Drew Thomsen (2).
“I Dare You” is a little slicker than what we’re used to with this band, like a cleaned up Strokes outtake from the Room on Fire era. Are we already feeling nostalgic about the turn of the century? Those were the days, I guess, in retrospect. Curiously, lyrics website Genius credits Julian Casablancas with co-writing, but BMI doesn’t. So who knows? Either some dorky editor at Genius is being cute, or maybe a lawyer at Warners got nervous. (A query to the band remained unanswered at the time of publication.)
