Born Ruffians share the woozy ‘Miss You’

The Canadians release new album ‘Uncle, Duke & The Chief’ next month.

Canadians Born Ruffians are releasing their new album ‘Uncle, Duke & The Chief’ next month, and we’ve got the first play of its next single, ‘Miss You’.

A woozy, ’60s-indebted cut, the track follows ‘Forget Me’ and ‘Love Too Soon’ in previewing the new album, out on 16th February 16th via Paper Bag Records.

Speaking of the track, vocalist Luke Lalonde says: ”I found this old voice memo on my phone from 2015 called ‘I miss you so much baby’. It was just the chorus of ‘Miss You’ with vocal and piano, very early 60s vibe. I guess I just heard it on the right night when I had a guitar at hand and the rest of the song came very quickly. I think the narrator is a mix of pure ego and emotional suffering.

“He thinks the people walking by him on the sidewalk actually care about him, or are paying attention to him. This guy is sort of full of himself but he’s proud of his pain and his longing, he feels like it elevates him somehow and he wants to show it off.”

Listen to ‘Miss You’ and view the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
