On Oct. 2, Los Angeles-based indie/rock band Dawes will release a new record titled Good Luck With Whatever, via Rounder Records.

The album was announced in July and will be the band’s seventh album to date and the follow-up to 2018’s Passwords.

Here’s “St. Augustine At Night,” a song from the album that was premiered this week:

“‘St. Augustine at Night’ is a song about one’s relationship to their hometown,” said Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, “but also is a song about the varying degrees in which we all watch our lives pass us by.”

That wistful, melancholy song is the second released thus far from Good Luck With Whatever, following “Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?” and its entertaining green-screen video:

Good Luck With Whatever follows Dawes’ 2018 album Passwords, and is also the first release from the band since Taylor Goldsmith worked with his wife, Mandy Moore, on her solid 2019 record Silver Landings.

Said Goldsmith of Dawes’ new material:

“In the past, I’ve definitely been more precious about the way I wanted the songs to sound, but that’s never as fun. The music we make is everyone’s mode of expression, and the other guys all have chops that I don’t have and never will. The fact that we’re able to lean on each other and celebrate each other as individuals just makes us so much more excited about getting to play together in this band.”

And the track listing:

Still Feel Like A Kid
Good Luck With Whatever
Between The Zero and The One
None Of My Business
St. Augustine At Night
Who Do You Think You’re Talking To?
Didn’t Fix Me
Free As We Want To Be
Me Especially
