The Hold Steady have released a new song, “You Did Good Kid,” the second new one from Thrashing Thru The Passion, and can be downloaded with album pre-orders. Thrashing Thru The Passion is the band’s seventh studio album and is out August 16 on Frenchkiss Records. Fans can receive access to exclusive album bundles, including such extras as a poster, lithograph and enamel pin set. All album pre-orders will come with a free download of “You Did Good Kid” as well as the first song “Denver Haircut.” Both songs are available now at all DSPs.
“‘You Did Good Kid’ is the first song we worked on for this session, and remains a favorite,” says Craig Finn. “It went though a few iterations before we came to this arrangement, and I’m really psyched on it. It feels great to play live.”
