Next week, durable Jersey rock scrappers the Gaslight Anthem drop their fourth album Handwritten. First single “45” has already turned out to be a rare thing: A straight-up rock song that works perfectly as a summer driving anthem. (This year, as far as I can tell, only Japandroids and Superchunk have pulled off that same trick.) And today, we finally get to hear the whole album. NPR has a stream of it. To hear it, click here.
Handwritten is out 7/24 on Mercury.
