Drive-By Truckers have released a new seven-minute song called ‘The Driver’, which will appear on the band’s upcoming album Welcome 2 Club XIII. It follows previous single ‘Every Single Storied Flameout’ and the title track. Take a listen below.
“Around the same era of Club XIII, I spent a lot of time driving around late at night when I couldn’t sleep, listening to music loud and often having a beer or two,” vocalist/guitarist Patterson Hood said in a statement. “Sometimes during those drives I’d have these epiphanies about what to do with my life – like listening to Tim by The Replacements not long after it came out and deciding to drop out of school to try and make this whole band thing work.”
Welcome 2 Club XIII is due out June 3 via ATO Records.
