Cold War Kids have announced the premiere of their excellent new single, “Somewhere,“ available now at all DSPs and streaming services.



“I love this song,” says Cold War Kids’ Nathan Willett. “It’s very uplifting, but it has a sadness to it, a rock-iness that’s almost feminine and soulful. The line, I knew you were crazy/The night you shaved your head, my wife had this long, long hair and then shaved her head really short. Sometimes when you’re writing, little things pop up and you think, is that going to make sense? That’s to me the great thing about writing, when you can do something that’s very much based on a real thing but can be interpreted however by the listener.”

The single is accompanied by an official visualizer, shot by acclaimed filmmaker Mezzy (Lil Peep: Everybody’s Everything, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboy Carti), who has teamed up with the band to shoot visuals for all 8 tracks on the album, including a compelling official music video for album opening “Who’s Gonna Love Me Now”, and two separate cuts for the song “You Already Know”.

roduced by Lars Stalfors (St. Vincent, HEALTH, Foster the People), NEW AGE NORMS 1 includes such hit singles as “Beyond The Pale,” “4th of July,” and “Complainer,” the latter of which proved a multi-format radio favorite, reaching the top 5 at Triple A and the top 20 at Alternative outlets across America. The album – which features cover art by the Los Angeles-based band’s bassist, acclaimed artist Matt Maust – was also met by wide-ranging international applause, with Ireland’s Hot Press simply declaring, “Cold War Kids are a band at the peak of their powers…NEW AGE NORMS 1 is a shiny, slinky salvo of funk-pop, but if you dig a little deeper, it’s also a cerebral, politically charged powderkeg.” “The eight-track album features themes on the new age norms of class, gender, race and power that shape the world today,” wrote The Skinny, adding, “Beyond the sweet melodies and striking instrumentals, NEW AGE NORMS 1 is a project with a message.”
