Bethany Cosentino’s swift rise to fame as lead singer of L.A. rock duo Best Coast was exciting to witness. Their 2010 debut album Crazy For You spilled with lo-fi, love-dovey rock songs, which became instant classics, but while the band gained notoriety and their music climbed up the charts, Consentino was struggling to cope with success and was losing a battle with her insecurities. Following their most recent album—2015’s California Nights—and Trump’s election victory, Consentino experienced a creative dry spell and a whirlwind of emotional setbacks, so she turned to alcohol to numb the pain.

In 2017, she finally decided to get sober and found herself creatively tuned in again. The result was their fifth album Always Tomorrow, which leans into stomping, hi-fi rock riffs and anthemic choruses. The lyrics were largely informed by her “broken patterns” and journey back to sanity. “Some days I wake up and I feel like I’m on top of the world and I forget about everything that’s ever bummed me out, and other days, it all comes flooding back,” Consentino says. “This album is about leaving the darkness for the light, but still understanding that nothing is ever going to be perfect.”

Best Coast’s first album since 2015’is out in just a few weeks, and today we’re getting the third track off Always Tomorrow, following “For the First Time” and “Everything Has Changed.”

The duo’s album opener is called “Different Light,” a dynamic song in which Bethany Cosentino sings about a compassionate viewpoint and the ability to see things from another’s perspective: “Guess before I thought of only things being in black or white / Who am I to judge if you still see things in a different light?”

Always Tomorrow is out February 21st  by Best Coast Concord Records,
