Drive-By Truckers release live version of “What It Means” from Newport Folk

The Drive-By Truckers have released a new digital single for “What It Means” recorded live at this summers Newport Folk Festival. It was the highlight of a powerful, energized set – and a crowning moment in the past year of the bands life, touring behind the politically charged (and critically acclaimed) American BandPatterson Hood tells Rolling Stone: “When we recorded [the album] they hadn’t even had the first primary yet. We were writing about this dark time that I honestly thought was going to get better.” Read the whole piece here and stream or download the track now, or pre-order on limited edition 7″ backed with a brand new studio track”The Perilous Night”.
