Neuer Song von Texas Is The Reason

Texas Is The Reason haben den bisher unveröffentlichten Song "When Rock 'N' Roll Was Just a Baby"bei zum Anhören bereit gestellt. Es handelt sich um den letzten Song, den die Band aus New York vor ihrer Auflösung 1997 geschrieben hat. Er wird auch auf "Do You Know Who You Are?: The Complete Collection" enthalten sein, einer Retrospektive, die via Revelation Records im Februar erscheint.

Gitarrist Norman Brannon über den Song:
"It was kind of like a Brian Eno 'oblique strategies' thing, where the challenge was to write a pop song that didn't actually have a chorus. We were right on the verge of finally signing with Capitol after a years-long bidding war at that point, and I think we were having a reactionary moment. It was like, 'We won't go quietly!' But I remember Gary Gersh, who was the president of Capitol at the time, told me it it was one of the best songs we've ever written, and that was really one of the first moments where I ever thought our band could actually work beyond the indie-rock world - when the guy who signed Nirvana loved a song without a chorus."
