The Pretty Reckless have premiered a new song titled “And So It Went.” This track features Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello and it will appear on the band’s new album “Death By Rock And Roll,” which is set to be released on February 12. Taylor Momsen commented:
“The world has been in such a state of civil unrest. ‘And So It Went‘ basically comes from that vision. As a songwriter, I feel like I’m not here to preach. I use music to observe and communicate what I see around me. This song felt like the perfect storm for Tom Morello to join in and rip the sound waves apart with his guitar. It was more than a pleasure having him add his unique and defining sound to the song.”
The Pretty Reckless have shared a behind the scenes look at the making of their recently released video for “25.” You can check that out below. “25” is from the band’s new album “Death By Rock And Roll,” which will be released on February 12.
“’25’ is one of the first songs we recorded, I think it was the first song we recorded for the album. I wrote that song when I was 25, [and] we recorded it right after I turned 25. It’s very autobiographical, in a lot of ways. I thought it would be an interesting idea to figure out a way to go through all the years of my life and somehow calculate that and have it end with 25. But the inspiration was really drawn from me just reflecting on my life up until that point, writing this autobiographical song from a place of despair. When I finished writing ’25’, it was a moment where I noticed the shift in my writing. I took a bit of a turn, and I think that I got better.
On the record, it’s kind of the first musical shift. If you listen to the album from front to back, it starts very heavy and very dark and bleak, and about halfway through the album, it takes a musical shift. There is hope and there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that’s all very intentional with the track listing. ’25’ is kind of the first indication that there is hope. It was certainly a growing point for me as a songwriter, where I took a step forward.”
The Pretty Reckless have premiered a new song titled “25.” This track is from the band’s new album “Death By Rock And Roll,” which will be released on February 12. Taylor Momsen commented:
“’25’ is an interesting song that came from a lot of different places. It was the first song we recorded for the record in early 2019. I had just turned 25 when we wrote it. In a way, it’s an autobiography and hopefully shows that this album really ventures out into new territory with the music.”
