The Fruit Bats have shared a new song, "Waking Up in Los Angeles," a charmingly sleepy track with an infectious, harmony-laden hook. “This is a sad song masquerading as a happy one,” Eric D Johnson says. “Or maybe vice versa? This might be the first song I’ve written where the first verse is a disclaimer – and, yes, I am talking to YOU with this one. This is about spiritual homes, the geography of the heart, and waking up in a weird, hard world where the birds still sing.”
Is this the first single from a follow-up to 2021's The Pet Parade? Johnson says "more related news to come," so stay tuned. Meanwhile, listen to "Waking Up in Los Angeles" below.
