The War On Drugs – I Don't Live Here Anymore (New Vinyl)
NEW DOUBLE LP
New sealed copy. Black vinyl.
I Don't Live Here Anymore is the fifth studio album by American indie rock band The War on Drugs. It was released on October 29, 2021, through Atlantic Records.
I Don't Live Here Anymore was recorded at seven different studios over the course of three years. The album was co-produced by frontman Adam Granduciel and engineer Shawn Everett. Granduciel moved to Los Angeles at the end of 2014, and moved to New York City in 2018, where he spent most of the year. In March 2018, while still on tour in support of the band's fourth album A Deeper Understanding, Granduciel began work on the album at Outlier Inn studio in Upstate New York. He spent a week there demoing songs with bassist Dave Hartley and multi-instrumentalist Anthony LaMarca. In between touring, Granduciel also spent time writing and recording at Studio G in Brooklyn. At the end of 2018, the band spent a week recording at Electric Lady Studios in downtown Manhattan. Granduciel spent 2019 in Los Angeles, and recorded with band at Electro-Vox Recording Studios in May 2019. Granduciel and Everett separated in March 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. They reunited in October 2020 at Sound City Studios, where they recorded for three weeks. Recording also took place at Sunset Sound Recorders and EastWest Studios.
The songs on I Don't Live Here Anymore were all reimagined, rewritten and/or remixed multiple times over the course of the album's three-year recording process. Once the album was given a "final" mixing and was mastered by Greg Calbi, Granduciel decided to change the mixes of several songs. After a month of revision, Atlantic Records pushed back its release date. One day, Granduciel arranged a final session with Everett to complete the album. They spent twelve hours in Everett's studio remixing several tracks, and then remastered those songs themselves.
