Leagues are happy to share the latest track off their forthcoming new album Alone Together. “New Money” premiered via Baeble who called the single, “an uplifting track that incorporates some R&B/pop influences sonically, with desperate, passionate vocals reminiscent of Modest Mouse or Twenty One Pilots.” The band’s Thad Cockrell told Baeble, “Growing up in a middle-class family and living the under the poverty line for most of my adult life while trying to make it as an artist has been an interesting journey. I have always felt the gap between “The Haves and the Have Nots”. I have also watched the ship sail until completely out of view. The truth is, most of us will never know what it’s like to be wealthy, nor are the rich ever going to just give up their money. So Jeremy and I thought, what would it look like for us to create a “new economy”? Let’s rob the bank, break into the vaults and allow people to take as much as they want. From that idea, we came up with “meaning is the new money”. To us, it feels like a beautiful form of rebellion. You can take the old, we’ll take the “new money”.
