The War On Drugs’ sprawling Slave Ambient is out August 16 on Secretly Canadian. Following the release of the instant classic “Baby Missiles” we now share with you the album’s centerpiece “Come to the City” in which head honcho Adam Granduciel takes the show to the next level. It’s a modern American outsider classic; a straight-up jam. All goosebumps and fist pumps; and Granduciel howling and moaning over his epic, phased Firebird guitars.
“Come to the City” also happens to include what very well may be my favorite The War on Drugs lyric: “Drinking up all the sweet tea/It was made/Just for me.” CLAZZIG.
Slave Ambient is also now available for pre-order, the first 75 vinyl orders of which will receive the limited-run oh-so-fancy ruby red LP version of the record (see the sweet pic below). There are also several great War on Drugs catalogue bundle deals. Get it all HERE.
