The Gaslight Anthem Returns

After the amazing side project the Horrible Crows (which led to some incredible songs like "The Hurricane"), Brian Fallon is back with The Gaslight Anthem.  The first single off the album Handwritten is "45" was released this week.


Hey, hey, turn the record over.
Hey hey, and I'll see you on the flip side.
There you go, turn the key and engine over.
Let her go, let somebody else lay at her feet.
This song is about a breakdown, failure and regret.  However somewhere in the driving beat, there's a voice of reassurance.  Within the complex emotions, there's a simplicity, a symphony of broken dreams that somehow evolves into a sense of hope.
