Allday is gearing up for the release of his fourth studio album, and now the rapper has delivered fans another taste of it with new single ‘Stolen Cars’.
The song is the third cut we’ve heard from the forthcoming album, Drinking With My Smoking Friends, which is due out Friday, 28th May. It follows the release of ‘After All This Time’ late last year, and ‘Void’ earlier this year.
“‘Stolen Cars’ is about two people who think they can get away from everything and start over,” Allday – real name Tom Gaynore – said in a press statement about the song.
“I think it’s sort of a universal feeling, most people have been inside the weird dream of young love before. It doesn’t always last, but the optimism of that moment is something to hold onto. Most importantly, I think the song is great to dance to in the living room.”
Of the album itself, Allday says, “Drinking With My Smoking Friends is about escaping something and finding something new, whether that’s a place, a relationship or something else.
“A part of me thought, ‘I want to stop being so relentlessly dark in my music. Why don’t I just try to be a bit optimistic?’ All the songs on the record are deliberately optimistic but they contain shadows, and those are the optimistic songs I like, because they feel more human.”
