The Goo Goo Dolls have debuted the first single from their upcoming new album, Something For The Rest Of Us, due out in July.  The track, titled "Home" is a mid-tempo rock track from an album that bassist Robby Takac called 'a little dark' during an interview with Alternative Addiction last month


"This record’s a little dark, but times are a little dark right now,” Takac said.  “It’s about a glimmer of hope, and I feel like that really comes across on this record.”

“The tone of the record was very much guided by ourselves, and that made the process pretty organic,” explained Takac who admitted the recording process for this album was much different than their previous session for Let Love In with producer Glen Ballard.

“We had a little bit more control over what the record sounded like this time than we did the last time.  And I am a big fan of our last record, I am not bashing it, but I think there was a lot of Glen Ballard’s personality interjected into that record.  I think this one is much more pure.”
