The Stranglers adelanta This Song, otro nuevo temazo

33

El tercer adelanto de Dark Matters, el nuevo disco de la emblemática banda inglesa es una pieza alineada con su clásico sonido inicial

The Stranglers – This Song (Vídeo Oficial)

La emblemática banda británica prosigue el camino al lanzamiento de su nuevo disco, Dark Matters, el número 18 en su extensa carrera discográfica comenzada en 1977 con Rattus Norvegicus y No More Heroes.

Este es el primer disco tras la muerte por complicaciones derivadas del COVID-19 de Dave Greenfield en mayo de 2020, y es su último testimonio como teclista fundador. Y también es el primer álbum tras el retiro de Jet Black, el baterista fundador.

Solo queda de los originales el gran bajista, co-vocalista y compositor Jean Jacques Burnell. La banda la completan actualmente el guitarrista y vocalista Baz Warne, presente en la banda desde el año 2000, y el el nuevo batería Jim Macaulay, a la espera de conocer el nuevo teclista.

«This Song«, cuyo sonido recuerda al de finales de los 70 y principios de los 80, viene acompañada de un interesante vídeo dirigido y producido por Jamie Wanstall, con dirección de fotografía de Phil Thomas y la gran actuación de Stuart Pearce, secundado por Richard Anderson, Leon Lawrence y Kevin Francomme

Letra:

I’m collecting all these feelings for you
Put them in a box in a darkened room
And seal the lid with an industry standard glue
Make the box into a silent tomb
With all these photographs and pictures of you
Taken in a car and someone else’s front room

This song will get me over you
Lift me up and take me out of view
This song that says that she’ll hurt you once or twice
But she’ll never be with you the way you want her to
This song will get me over you

Take the box into uncharted seas
Far away from all humanity
And swear the crew to absolute secrecy
Sink the box down to the ocean floor
For maybe 20,000 leagues or more
And ban deep sea diving by an act of law

This song will get me over you
Lift me up and take me out of view
This song that says that she’ll hurt you once or twice
But she’ll never be with you the way you want her to
This song will get me over you

Ill trust in Davy Jones’ locker
Far from any grave robber
To steal away all the memories of you
And all the people they may wonder
That I no longer seem to bother
And I appear to be completely over you

This song will get me over you
Lift me up and take me out of view
This song that says that she’ll hurt you once or twice
But she’ll never be with you the way you want her to
This song will get me over you
Lift me up and take me out of view
This song that says that she’ll hurt you once or twice
But she’ll never be with you the way you want her to
This song will get me over you
This song will get me over you
This song will get me over you
This song will get me over you
If that’s what I really wanna do
