The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon announces new solo album, Sleepwalkers, shares “Forget Me Not”: Stream

Brian Fallon, singer/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, is gearing up to release his sophomore solo album. It’s titled Sleepwalkers and due out February 9th through Island Records.

The follow-up to 2016’s Painkillers was recorded earlier this year at Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans alongside Ted Hutt, who previously worked on The Gaslight Anthem’s 2008 breakthrough LP, The ’59 Sound. A press statement describes the forthcoming album as recasting British Invasion rock, first generation UK punk, and American pop and soul into a near irresistible sound he’s dubbed — with a nod and a wink towards The Who — as ‘Heavy R&B.'”

As a teaser of what’s to come, Fallon has shared the first single, the impassioned and ’60s-inspired “Forget Me Not”. “I was thinking how every song doesn’t have to be so serious,” Fallon shares. “It can just be fun. It can just be a song that I would want to play live. ‘Forget Me Not’ came out in just a couple of minutes and actually ended up being pretty serious — it seems my subconscious had other plans.”

Hear it below.

In support of Sleepwalkers, Fallon has lined up an extensive run of 2018 European and North American tour dates with his backing band The Howling Weather.
