Following a surprisingly funky new single last month, Hoobastank just shared the title track from their upcoming album, Push Pull. Like “More Beautiful,” the new song draws on funk styles and plenty of falsetto from frontman Doug Robb. The lyrics tackle a difficult relationship that’s out of your control: You can only push or pull so much before it’s up to the other person to make a move. Overall, it’s a fun song that revives the band’s early, charming energy.
Learn the words to “Push Pull” in the lyric video below:
While some fans may balk at the supposed style change, we love this new song and embrace the band’s courage in exploring different musical directions. Indeed, creative freedom often leads to the most innovation. Keep an open mind, people!
If you want to hear more from the new album, check out the band’s live performances of two new songs: “Don’t Look Away” and “True Believer.” You can also catch up on everything that went into making Push Pull over the last several years here.
You can stream “Push Pull” on Spotify or download it from iTunes now. Look out for the full record on May 25th! You can pre-order the album from Hoobastank’s official site, or check out exclusive bundles on their Pledge Music page. Find extra digital options here.
