The Goo Goo Dolls are known just as much for peppy, guitar-forward pop/rock anthems as they are slower, more deliberate ballads — and thus far, the multiplatinum band has showed both sides of its repertoire in previewing an upcoming album, Chaos in Bloom.

The record, the 13th studio album from John Rzeznik and Robby Takac to date, is due out on Aug. 12. Here’s the song “You Are the Answer,” which arrived on Friday:

It follows “Yeah, I Like You,” a more upbeat track with a spirited video taking aim at “celebrity culture” and the pratfalls therein:

“In a world that is just drowning in social media and internet stars, many of whom are certainly talented, but many confirm that in 2022 you can be famous for doing nothing,” said singer/guitarist John Rzeznik. “Celebrity in this age has a very quick burn. It was hard not to be consumed by it during the pandemic.”

“Chaos in Bloom reminded us how special this whole thing is and to cherish the relationships that we have together,” said Rzeznik of the album. “Where we’ve been, and where we’re going.”

Yeah, I Like You
War
