Later this month, the long-running Southern rock cult heroes Drive-By Truckers will come out with a new album called American Band. And while the two songs we’ve already heard, “Surrender Under Protest” and “What It Means,” address of-the-moment political concerns, the song they’ve just shared, “Filthy And Fried,” goes another direction, looking at the way relationships have changed over the years. (Of course, depending on how you look at it, that could be a political issue, too.) The new song is as warm and ragged and weary as we’ve come to expect from this band, and you can hear it below.
American Band is out 9/30 on ATO Records.
