After sharing a cryptic teaser online earlier this week, Big Red Machine have confirmed that their new album, ‘How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last?’, will be arriving on 27th August via 37d03d.
Sharing first single and album opener ‘Latter Days’ today, which also features vocals from Anaïs Mitchel, Aaron Dessner says, “It was clear to Anaïs that the early sketch Justin and I made of ‘Latter Days’ was about childhood, or loss of innocence and nostalgia for a time before you’ve grown into adulthood — before you’ve hurt people or lost people and made mistakes. She defined the whole record when she sang that, as these same themes kept appearing again and again.”
