LISTEN TO “THE BONES OF US” HERE
PRE-ORDER NEW ALBUM INTERROBANG, OUT ON AUGUST 20 VIA FANTASY RECORDS HERE
Today, Grammy Award-winning rock band Switchfoot releases their newest single “the bones of us” off their upcoming album interrobang, set for release on August 20 via Fantasy Records. Produced by Tony Berg (Paul McCartney, Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird), “the bones of us” skillfully weaves shimmering cymbals and bright keys together with Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman’s gripping vocal delivery.
Challenging our ephemeral, disposable culture, “the bones of us” digs in the dirt of who we once were: the faded dreams, forgotten ideas, false hopes, and lost relationships that transformed us into who we are today. The bittersweet song is shot with a ray of hopefulness as the song decrescendos and leaves its overarching message hanging in the air: “yes, I’m fighting for myself,” says the narrator, “but most of all for you.”
“When we first began to rehearse [the bones of us], it felt like we fell into a trance and stumbled on what a daydream would sound like if you played it on the guitar,” says Foreman. “This is ultimately a tune that digs at the bones of the past while keeping an eye on the future.”
