Today, Band of Horses have shared “In Need of Repair”, the latest song to be revealed from their forthcoming album. “In Need of Repair” showcases band founder Ben Bridwell’s heartfelt lyrics that touch on the fracturing of relationships, the hypotheticals that come from those moments, and the honesty it takes to admit you need to fix what is intrinsically wrong. Bridwell’s trademark lyrics are elegant in their stark simplicity as he pleads, “It’s not enough” over odd tonic chording and breezy, laconic drumming. The song is also featured on New Music Daily on Apple Music. Listen to “In Need of Repair” HERE.
The song is included on their sixth studio album and first record in more than five years Things Are Great, out January 21, 2022 via BMG. Sonically, the album is a return to their earlier work and the kind of raw ethos that lies at the heart of Band of Horses. It’s available for pre-order HERE.
“In Need Of Repair” follows previously released single “Crutch,” a bittersweet song buoyed by its charming cat-centric official music video.
