Hurray for the Riff Raff Shares New Songs ‘Colossus of Roads’ and ‘Snake Plant (The Past Is Still Alive)’

    Hurray for the Riff Raff have put out two new songs, ‘Colossus of Roads’ and ‘Snake Plant (The Past Is Still Alive)’. Alongside the previously unveiled ‘Alibi’, they’ll appear on the forthcoming LP The Past Is Still Alive, which is out February 23 via Nonesuch. Take a listen below.

    “I’ve only had this experience a couple of times, where a song falls on me — it’s all there, and I don’t do anything,” Alynda Segarra shared in a statement. “Writing ‘Colossus Of Roads’ felt like creating a space where all us outsiders can be safe together. That doesn’t exist, but it exists in our minds, and it exists in this song — this one is sacred to me. I’ve also always wanted to make my version of Bob Dylan’s ‘I Was Young When I Left Home,’ and ‘Snake Plant (The Past Is Still Alive)’ is it.”
