Oh I swear to ya, I’ll be there for ya – this is not a drive by, just a shy guy
San Francisco based Train is back and preparing for the release of their sixth studio album this year! Currently there are only a few details available about the album and it seems the release is tentatively aimed at March or April but what we do know is that this song – “Drive By” – is the official first single from the Columbia Records project. A catchy acoustic radio single, I can tell this song is going to be a big hit from them, given that it’s been stuck in my head from first listen. The first thirty seconds or so could be mistaken for Flo Rida‘s “Good Feeling” (the entire guitar part sounds a little like Flo’s hit, in my opinion) but I’m not complaining, because it is a well executed acoustic pop track that is going to do well around the globe.
The bands 2009 album Save Me, San Francisco did very well critically and commercially and I am really excited to hear what they are going to bring to the table in 2012. I’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on future released singles from the project, but make sure you keep an eye out for these guys as we get into the new year.
What do you think of “Drive By”?
