Have we got a "Surprise" for you!
ARTISTdirect.com has teamed up with rock stalwarts Filter and their label Wind-up Records to premiere the track "Surprise" from the band's new album The Sun Comes Out Tonight, releasing on June 4.
"Sometimes in songwriting, you have to dig deep to find the inspiration," frontman Richard Patrick told ARTISTdirect about the song. "A song can be hard work, but when we started on 'Surprise,' the spark happened fast. It's like the song wrote itself."
Listen to the song that practically wrote itself and enjoy! It's beautifully constructed track, and it's one of our favorite songs of the year so far, since it has that signature Filter sound – you hear it and you know it's Patrick and co. We are confident you will share our passion for it. It's contemplative and thoughtful, but it latches on. The melody is supremely memorable.
Also, about The Sun Comes Out Tonight, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino says, "Filter churns out their best batch of songs yet. Maintaining the melody of the likes of Title of Record with the right dose of Short Bus-style vitriol and viciousness, their sound has been built up into an even more brilliant beast. Filter's Sun is shining brighter than ever".
