"We're sister cities".
After weeks of mystery, The Wonder Years have dropped the video for new song 'Sister Cities'.
The track comes from the band's forthcoming album of the same name, which was revealed earlier this week, and will be released April 06 via Hopeless.
It's a trip.
Check it out below...
And frontman Dan Campbell had this to say about the album...
"It started with journals and photos. We started by documenting.
"We didn't know where it would go or if it would go anywhere at all but we wrote it all down. We took photos of everything.
"And then when it came to put it altogether, we had this catalog of how we felt and what it looked like and sounded like and we built from there. Figuring out what the moments were that stayed with me the most. When did I feel most connected to the people around me and why? What did being in this place during this moment teach me?
"It was a difficult year personally and globally and we experienced that through this lens of being everywhere but home, kind of floating through places and seeing how being there altered our perspective."
The album looks like this...
And poet Hanif Abdurraqib also added...
"'Sister Cities' is an album about how all of our distance might not be so wide after & it was written with the world on fire & all of the songs sound like they are trying to build you a bridge from somewhere bad to somewhere better.
"The Wonder Years are a band & they are also bridge builders."
