The track, written in 2020 during the pandemic and recorded with producer Jaren Johnston of the Cadillac Three in Nashville, features Charlie Worsham on dobro and Tom Bukovac on guitar.
Shiflett shared that the song is an ode to the characters and character of his Santa Barbara hometown.
“My hometown was an odd mix of luxury paradise and working-class grit and continues to be a bottomless pit of lyrical inspiration,” he said. “Sad to say there’s been more than a few friends who’ve left us too soon, so there are lots of stories there, kind of a lost generation.”
A full new solo album, recorded with producer Jaren Johnston, is set for release later this year via Snakefarm.
Meanwhile, Foo Fighters recently announced their 11th album ‘But Here We Are’ and shared its first single ‘Rescue’. This will be the band’s first album since the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins.
