Bad Books New Album/Songs/Tour

2019-05-04 by SowingSeason STAFF | 4 Comments
Andy Hull/Kevin Devine project Bad Books have announced their third LP, titled Bad Books III, due out June 14 via Loma Vista. The announcement was accompanied by two new songs, one written by each member. "Lake House" was written by Hull and "I Love You, I'm Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You" by Devine. Below you can hear each track in its entirety, accompanied by brief passages by Andy and Kevin describing what inspired their songs.

"Lake House":

Lake House’ is quite a personal song to me. We tried to place it in a sonic environment that felt three dimensional. Instead of just hearing the song left and right, we wanted to have the sounds feel forward, backwards, above and below. Hopefully achieving a certain level of floating and immersive movements to take the listener along with the lyrical journey. -Andy Hull

"I Love You, I'm Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You":

I wrote the song after the birth of my daughter, about the difficult time I was having reconciling some of what was so terrifying to me about that moment atmospherically/culturally with the indescribable experience I was having as a new father. And also about how even the profound joy I felt didn’t dissolve every preexisting ugly knuckle kicking around in my psyche. I’d heard this phrase offered as a prayer in a secular setting. It offers me a bit of perspective and calm when things feel overwhelming. It feels good to sing. -Kevin Devine
