Ahead of next month’s release of the new album A Way Forward on November 5, Nation of Language have shared another of its tracks, a stellar new wave cut “The Grey Commute”.
It is released alongside probably their best and definitely their funniest music video so far, which features fantastic acting performances by the trio and also a great dose of dark humour. It is directed by Gary Canino (aka Dark Tea).
Talking about the new song, songwriter/vocalist Ian Devaney said:
«In some ways “The Grey Commute” is one of the more upbeat songs of the record, but in truth it’s one that was born out of much more depressing stuff. As I was working on the lyrics I had a kind of fixation on terrible tax policies, our cultural addiction to meaningless consumption, and it all got swept together into this punchy, kind of fun track».
