Having teased new material on their social channels yesterday, The War On Drugs have now fully revealed details of their first album in four years titled I Don't Live Here Anymore.

The band's fifth studio album is their second full-length release on Atlantic Records after 2017's A Deeper Understanding, which won Best Rock Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. I Don't Live Here Anymore is set for release on 29th October. 

Check out the video to the album's delicate lead single 'Living Proof' below, directed by filmmaker Emmett Malloy and shot on 16mm:

 'Living Proof' came together in a natural, streamlined way which makes a marked difference for bandleader Adam Granduciel, who's renowned for his sonic intricacies in the studio. Promising the most personal songs he's written to date, he appears he's taking the band in a more intimate direction. 

Given their previous albums Lost In A Dream and A Deeper Understanding reinstated the heart at the core of contemporary rock music, we couldn't have thought they could get any more hazy and emotive.
