Listen: The Gaslight Anthem – “45”

On July 24th, New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem will be unveiling their fourth album and first since joining Mercury Records, Handwritten. And with it, the band plans on reverting back to their punkier roots, despite all the acclaim that followed the more mature, more mellow American Slang that saw its release back in 2010.

Our first taste arrives with the stunning “45”, which was recorded early in the Handwritten sessions. Frontman Brian Fallon revealed to RollingStone, “This song felt to us like we still had something to say in this long line of rock & roll tradition. It made the path clear as to what we should do next. Sometimes you just have to leave things behind . . . turn the record over.” I, for one, am certainly not complaining.
