Greg Graffin wird am 10. März via ANTI- Records sein neues Solo-Album “Millport” auf den Markt bringen. Mit “Lincoln’s Funeral Train” und “Making Time” hatte der Bad Religion-Sänger daraus bereits zwei Songs vorgestellt, nun folgt der dritte Vorab-Track: “Backroads Of My Mind”!
“Millport is my exploration of the paradox between getting older and remaining relevant. There’s a great amount of symbolism in that idea. It goes along with me being an aging punk rocker that’s coming to terms with my own mortality and humanity. Somehow, we persist in the face of modernity and things always trying to move past us.
Last year I put out a book called Population Wars that is an academic attempt at explaining persistence in the face of change. Millport is kind of my musical expression of that paradox.
When I turned 50, I started thinking that there are avenues of my mind that I haven’t explored for over 25 years,” Graffin tells Rolling Stone Country. “The lyric ‘They’ve long been neglected and lately they’re in decline’ describes my brain just as much as it describes the roads around my house.”
