On November 25th, Japanese trio Boris will release their next album, the experimental New Album on Sargent House. Inspired by current Japanese pop music trends, the album contains reworkings of previously released tracks. "This Spring, Boris put out two new albums called Attention Please and Heavy Rocks," drummer Atsuo explains to Rolling Stone. "These separate albums [were compiled] from one abandoned record. Once we finished those two we came up with an idea for another record – to rearrange some songs from both albums then to combine with new ones. 'Flare' is one of the new songs, the latest transformation of Boris."

Boris' New Album will be released on November 25th, but you can download "Flare" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
