2018 marks a new era for Swearin’, the beloved Philly band that parted ways a few years back before reuniting earlier this year. Not only will their forthcoming album Fall into the Sun be the band’s first release in five years, but it marks a growth in songwriting and a dive into introspective territory, tackling head-on the challenges and changes the band members have faced since they last made music together.

“Untitled (LA)” is the second single off the new record, which will be out October 5 via Merge Records, and it gives us a further glimpse into why songwriter/vocalist Allison Crutchfield calls Fall into the Sun “the adult Swearin’ album.” With all the scrappy energy the band has always been known for, Crutchfield sings about distance and disconnect, about moving on from the past and finding a home in a new city while repeating, “If I had never left home, would you still feel like you’re alone?”
