Listen to the Good Life’s New Song, ‘The Troubadour’s Green Room’
The Good Life recently announced they would return with Everybody’s Coming Down -- their first album since 2007’s Help Wanted Nights -- this August. At the time, the band unveiled the forthcoming LP’s first single, “Everybody.” Now they’ve followed up with “The Troubadour’s Green Room.” Take a listen in the video below.
Eight years out from their last release, Tim Kasher, who also serves as the frontman for Cursive, sounds pretty disenchanted with his position as Omaha indie luminary: “I’m singing for vanity / I’m singing for the world to want me / I’m siging ‘cause I’m lonely.”
The new song could very well speak to the overall mood of Everybody’s Coming Down, which -- according to a press release -- “poses, cosmic queries, contemplates regrets, questions self-worth and examines the possibility of living in the moment, when memories are all that we truly take with us.”
Everybody’s Coming Down is due out on Aug. 14 via Saddle Creek Records, marking the Good Life’s fifth full-length. It follows their 2000 debut, Novena on a Nocturn, 2002’s Black Out, 2004’s Album of the Year and Help Wanted Nights.
Kasher and company will kick off a U.S. tour the day at Omaha's Maha Music Festival the day after Everybody’s Coming Down is released. Then, they have a month’s worth of concerts on the books, culminating with a show in Iowa City on Sept. 6. Check out all of the dates in-between here.
