The War On Drugs are set to release their fourth album, A Deeper Understanding, three weeks from today and to help preview it they have shared the second official single, “Pain.” It’s in this song that we hear the album’s title in its lyrics, and, as a press release notes, is one of two songs Adam Granduciel cut, nearly-live, on his first night working with engineer Shawn Everett and the band — bassist Dave Hartley, keyboardist Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez– at Sonora Recorders in Los Angeles.
