According to Atlantic, ‘A Deeper Understanding’ is a “band record in the noblest sense, featuring collaboration, coordination, and confidence at every turn”. It was apparently created after frontman Adam Granduciel and his bandmates committed to the “revisiting and reexamining of endless hours of recordings” that they laid down in various recording studios in New York and Los Angeles.
The album’s full tracklist is as follows:
‘Up All Night’
‘Nothing To Find’
‘Thinking Of A Place’
‘You Don’t Have To Go’
