The Devil Wears Prada have shared the video for the brand new song “Watchtower.” The song embodies everything Revolver recently said about the band: “The Devil Wears Prada have proven time and time again that it’s possible to never stop sonically experimenting… and never lose their own crushing identity.”
“The idea of this song is about a person being intentionally difficult even though happiness wants to find him/her,” Hranica says, giving the listener a deeper insight into the powerful subject matter. “In handling my own mental health struggles, I’ve found that I oftentimes never choose contentment on a fundamental basis: almost like I’ve skipped Step One. The narrator of ‘Watchtower’ is afraid to approach Step One and instead flees to perceive his/her life as a sort of passive overlooker instead.”
