Fuel have premiered a new song titled “Don’t Say I.” This track is from the band’s new album “Anomaly,” which is expected to be released in October.
Carl Bell told Stereogum the following:
“‘Don’t Say I’ was written in March. It was actually the last song written for the record. I’m always looking for the no-brainer song that everybody’s going to love, and those are always super hard to find. Anybody who’s a songwriter knows it’s not easy to come up with stuff that people [love]. I think the latest version of that was Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Driver’s License.’ You heard that song the first time, and you just go, ‘I don’t know why I love that song, but it’s so honest because she’s young.’ And you want that song every time, though it’s super hard to find.”
He also added:
“I really like [“Don’t Say I”]. I think it’s a very strong song for us. I think it also helps bridge the gap between the previous material and the new material. You’ll be able to hear the old, traditional Fuel feelings that you had before with this song with a little modern twist to it as well. We’re really stoked about this song as well as the first song that came out. Basically, I’m really stoked about this whole record, to tell you the truth. I don’t usually feel so strongly about a record, but this one has turned out to be very well for us.”
