The Wonder Years have announced their upcoming new record, ‘The Hum Goes On Forever’ set to drop on September 23rd 2022 via Hopeless Records.
In addition tot he announcement, the band have shared: ‘Wyatt’s Song (Your Name)’ and is written for vocalist Dan Campbell’s oldest son. It’s a song that also feels like the foundation for a lot of what the album will be about, and is as beautiful and emotional as you would expect.
Dan had this to say about it:
“It’s about the polarising forces of love and anxiety that come with being a new parent—simultaneously being so overjoyed that they’re here, about the miraculous nature of their existence, but afraid of all the ways you could fail them. It’s about raising children in a world that feels like it’s actively ending and how to make them feel safe and cared for despite that. It tries to breathe in the small, beautiful moments and exhale all of the invasive thoughts of despair.”
