Fall Out Boy have released the video for their new track "Centuries," our preview for their forthcoming album, about which we have absolutely no information.
But I don't even care because this song is sick as frick.
I am of the unpopular category of people that believes Folie a Deux was probably the greatest Fall Out Boy album, and Centuries feels like the proper follow up, but hugely evolved and stronger than what a pre-hiatus band could have given us. There's the imperative and some of the same structural elements as in Folie a Deux, but with the war-cry vocals and reclaiming of the youth of Save Rock and Roll. It almost could have come before Save Rock and Roll, but I'm glad it didn't because it's even better as a follow up.
Also worthy of note, the sample from Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner," which I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been obsessed with the song years ago.
