It’s going to be very hard to match my immense adoration for The War on Drugs’ 2014 album Lost in the Dream, but the Philadelphia collective’s new album A Deeper Understanding, which arrives later this month, has certainly been shaping up to be a stupendous release. All of the songs we’ve heard so far off of the album have been well received and critically acclaimed. Now we can add Pain to A Deeper Understanding’s growing list of fine tunes, too. The languorous ambling, twangy worn treat from the well loved Americana and roots rock veterans takes us on a dreamy sojourn dripping with dusty nostalgia. “Pain” has never been more sublime. A Deeper Understanding arrives August 25th via Atlantic. Pre-order, here.
