Folk rock favorites Dawes will return June 2nd with their fourth LP, All Your Favorite Bands. Lead single “Things Happen” has already won a fan in future band member David Letterman. Now, the band is back with “Right on Time”.

The song rolls down a slightly dusty knoll of bass and keys, steady in its descent but always on the verge of falling dangerously out of control. It’s the kind of tumble a child might enjoy before he comes up with a scrapped knee. “If these walls could talk/ I’d defer to the furniture,” sings out frontman Taylor Goldsmith as he examines the relationship with a loved one. “The piano, the table, the bed that we both sleep in/ these constant silent messengers.” After a trademark guitar solo, however, things take a decidedly dark turn, and suddenly the track isn’t quite the romantic ode earlier lyrics purported to be. Take a listen below.

All Your Favorite Bands Tracklist:
01. Things Happen
02. Somewhere Along the Way
03. Don’t Send Me Away
04. All Your Favorite Bands
05. I Can’t Think About It Now
06. To Be Completely Honest
07. Waiting for Your Call
08. Right on Time
09. Now That IT’s Too Late, Maria

Dawes will hit the road this June for a massive tour supporting the new album. In addition to shows at fests like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza BerlinKAABOO, and Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road Stopover, they’ll have gigs alongside First Aid Kit, My Morning Jacket, James Vincent McMorrow, Hozier, and many more.
