Written by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney alongside Reigning Sound’s Greg Cartwright, “It Ain’t Over” opens with a smooth-shuffling guitar riff before a bass line the size of a monster truck starts ambling down the center of the track. “Money and love ain’t no sure thing,” Auerbach sings, “You live for a thrill, you die for a dream.” Check out a visualizer for “It Ain’t Over” below.
Dropout Boogie arrives May 13th on Nonesuch Records, and pre-orders are ongoing. Previously, the band shared the lead single “Wild Child.” You’ll be able to catch it live when the “Dropout Boogie” tour kicks off in September, and tickets are available here.
