Swervedriver have shared another track from their forthcoming album Future Ruins, out January 25th via Dangerbird Records. Of the song, "The Lonely Crowd Fades In The Air," singer Adam Franklin says "...we kept thinking of The Clash, even though it doesn’t sound anything like them, but it’s like a punch on the nose from a velvet glove. The title came from a misheard Supremes lyric [from the song "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone", he clarified for KEXP] and the words came out of that."
