Listen to the War on Drugs’ New Songs ‘Oceans of Darkness’ and ‘Slow Ghost’

    The War on Drugs have released the deluxe edition of their 2021 album I Don’t Live Here Anymore. It features two previously unreleased songs, ‘Oceans of Darkness’ – a track the band debuted on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in October 2020 – and ‘Slow Ghost’. Take a listen below.

    “One night in LA, while we were many months into working on what would be I Don’t Live Here Anymore, Dave [Hartley] uncovered a stripped down demo in my dropbox called ‘Oceans of Darkness,’ and insisted we try recording it,” bandleader Adam Granduciel explained in a statement. “We were frustrated and exhausted at the time, but we set up in a circle after dinner and worked it out as the tape was rolling. It’s rare that a song of ours could feel this complete after only a few takes, but it had all the desperation and urgency that we had been looking for. Ultimately I didn’t include it on the record because I couldn’t find a home for it among the other songs, but we’re happy we can share it with you now.”
