The War on Drugs have released two new songs as part of a new box set of I Don’t Live Here Anymore. “Oceans of Darkness” and “Slow Ghost” are both out now, ahead the deluxe album’s release this Friday, via Atlantic.
Back in 2020, the band debuted an early version of “Oceans of Darkness” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where they performed remotely via separate livestreams during the early days of the pandemic. In a statement about the studio version of the song, frontperson Adam Granduciel said:
I Don’t Live Here Anymore (Deluxe Edition) arrives in the midst of the band’s North American tour, which continues through October. The album will be available as a limited-edition 2xLP box set, which includes the album on 180-gram vinyl, a 7″ vinyl single of the two new songs, a copy of the album on cassette, and more.
