With their eagerly awaited fifth album ‘Back In Love City’ arriving on 10th September, The Vaccines are giving us our latest taste of what to expect, sharing new single ‘El Paso’.
Inspired by frontman Justin Young doing a ‘The Holiday’-esque house swap with someone in LA, he says, “I literally swapped lives with a stranger. I lived in in house and drove his car while he lived in mine, but we’d never met and had no previous connections.”
And the nylon-stringed guitar used on the song was originally owned by Elliot Smith!
