The Wallflowers – Exit Wounds (New Vinyl) (Limited Edition) (Purple Vinyl)
New sealed copy. Limited Edition on indie exclusive purple coloured vinyl.
Exit Wounds is the seventh studio album by The Wallflowers and their first in nine years since the release of Glad All Over. It was released by New West Records on July 9, 2021. The album debuted at #183 on the US Billboard 200 and #32 on the US Top Rock Albums. The album features singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne's backing vocals on four tracks. "Roots and Wings" was released as the first single on April 9, 2021.
Although the album was written and finished before the COVID-19 pandemic, Jakob Dylan said he said he didn't want to put it out during a time of such uncertainty and suffering. In speaking to Uproxx about the origins of the album he said "these songs are written before Covid, but we still had the dumpster fire of everything else that was happening before that." Dylan noted that while he does not consider it to be a political album, current events in the United States certainly had an impact on his writing. As he emphasized to Consequence of Sound, perseverance in spite of turbulent times is a major theme on the album. This theme is especially notable on the track "I'll Let You Down (But I Will Not Give You Up)", which uses a "wayward bus" as a metaphor for social upheaval in the United States, but features a hopeful chorus with Shelby Lynne singing harmony.
