311 Premiere New Songs “Good Feeling” & “Don’t You Worry”

311 have premiered lyric videos for two new songs, “Good Feeling” and “Don’t You Worry.” These tracks are from the band’s new album “Voyager,” which will be released on June 28. Everyone who pre-orders the effort will be automatically eligible to win various prizes including: tickets, meet-and-greet passes, handwritten lyrics, autographed goods, etc.

Nick Hexum said the following about “Good Feeling”:

“The songtitle says it all — being about the best stuff in life; celebrating joy with loved ones. This song is an antidote to all the fear, anger, and division so prevalent in society today. Musically, the song is equally influenced by the pounding rhythms that SA [Doug Martinez] and I discovered when exploring the dancehall street scenes in Jamaica, as well as Paul Simon’s world beat records like ‘Graceland’ and ‘Rhythm Of The Saints’. This song is a three-minute party jam meant to feel like a vacation.”

He also had the following to say about “Don’t You Worry”:

“We all go through highs and lows. And lows can often lead to confusion, despair and loneliness. ‘Don’t You Worry’ is about how a friend should react when we sense someone is going through a hard time: ‘Don’t You Worry, you can count on me to help you through your dark hours.’ It’s a song validating personal connection and leaning on one another to turn things for the better.”

Hexum also commented on the album:

“Our albums have become almost like a captain’s log documenting our band’s ongoing voyage through musical styles, while also capturing our feelings and life experiences. With each album, 311 continues to voyage, explore and push our musicality into new dimensions.”

“I think this album is very eclectic, from simple songs to wild studio adventures that get into weird, stoney outer-space material. It’s another step forward for us and we love the adventure, love the journey, love the process and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”
