"​Why can’t I just be here now?"

Basement have released a new song, 'Be Here Now'.

Not to be confused with the Oasis album or yoga guide (popular title, huh), it's a powerful meditation on the struggle for contentment.

"'Be Here Now' is about how hard I find it to feel content with what I’m doing, when I’m doing it," vocalist Andrew Fisher has told Billboard.

"I over-romanticize the past and the future, remembering what has been and looking forward to what will be, in a completely irrational and unfair way. I struggle to enjoy what I’m currently doing because I’m comparing it to a time in my past when I was ‘truly’ happy, or thinking about being somewhere else in the future when I believe I will be way happier than now."

Give it a listen here:

It's taken from the band's new album, 'Beside Myself', out October 12 via Fueled By Ramen.

Here's another song from it, 'Disconnect'.

They're touring the UK with Joyce Manor through November - those dates are:


16 - MANCHESTER Club Academy
17 - LEEDS Stylus
18 - GLASGOW Garage
20 - BIRMINGHAM Institute II
22 - LONDON Forum
