Goo Goo Dolls Release New Single, "Miracle Pill"

Goo Goo Dolls have unveiled their new single "Miracle Pill" last week via Warner Records.


Goo Goo Dolls have unveiled their new single "Miracle Pill" last week via Warner Records. The track will be featured on the band's brand new album also titled, Miracle Pill, which is set to be released this fall. Underscored by hummable piano, sweeping guitars, and a swaggering rhythm, the track sees lead singer John Rzeznik cleverly skewer the instant gratification generation with a chantable chorus and a message that goes down easier than anything from the pharmacy.



"Miracle Pill" is a metaphor for the instant gratification and relief we seek from our own circumstances," Rzeznik comments about both the song and record. "Are your sad? Take a pill. Are you lonely? Get popular on social media. The fact of the matter is no one has 50 friends much less 5,000. I'm just trying to articulate my observations of the second decade of the 21st Century, with all its angst, avarice, confusion and insecurities. We are inundated by bullshit, cheap shiny objects, and false solutions to every problem and desire we have. I have no answers to these questions but I don't believe hero worship, life hacks, short cuts and escapism are the answers. I just want to make a real connection with real people in real time."

Earlier this month, Goo Goo Dolls kicked off a co-headlining amphitheater tour alongside GRAMMY-winning band
Train, which has garnered rave reviews right out of the gate.
