Dawes return to their roots-rock origins for their seventh album, recorded with Nashville superproducer Dave Cobb. “Good Luck With Whatever” comes two years after their previous effort, Passwords, which found the band exploring textured modern rock with long time collaborator Jonathan Wilson. But early offerings from the new LP suggest something closer to the sound of the band’s first two albums: “St. Augustine At Night” is an intricate novella-style song that conjures classic Taylor Goldsmith epics like “A Little Bit of Everything,” while upbeat rockers like “Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?” finds the band channeling Eighties Petty. “In the past, I’ve definitely been more precious about the way I wanted the songs to sound, but that’s never as fun,” Goldsmith has said of Good Luck With Whatever. “The fact that we’re able to lean on each other and celebrate each other as individuals just makes us so much more excited about getting to play together in this band.”

The L.A. rock band Dawes will release their first new album since 2018’s Passwords later this year. Good Luck With Whatever is out October. 2nd on Rounder Records, and lead single “Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?” is out now alongside a fun new music video. The band, helmed by guitarist Taylor Goldsmith alongside his brother Griffin and their compadres Wylie Gelber (bass) and Lee Pardini (keys), recorded the new album at RCA Studios in Nashville, Tenn., with one of Music City’s most in-demand producers, Dave Cobb. “We’re a living breathing organism,” Pardini said in a statement. “People love to say, ‘this record sounds so THIS’ and ‘that record sounds so THAT,’ but to us, it just sounds like Dawes. We make records to document where we are at that time, but every time I check, it just sounds like Griff, Taylor, Wylie and me.”

Release date: October 2nd
