The Smith Street Band today release their first new music in two years. I Don’t Wanna Do Nothing Forever is the first single from the band’s forthcoming sixth album, due later in 2022. The band have also released the film clip for I Don’t Wanna Do Nothing Forever (by Nick Manuell).
Recorded by Smith Street bass player Fitzy, at the band’s own solar powered studio in regional Victoria, the single was mixed by Anton Hagop (Silverchair, Powderfinger, Jebediah, The Whitlams) and mastered by George Georgiadis. The release comes with an accompanying three live tracks recorded at The Forum in March earlier this year.
“A song about all the excitement and anxiety felt re-entering the world, what we’ve lost over the last few years and most importantly what we’ll gain when we finally get through everything we’ve all had to endure! This song is the first single off our upcoming record, we’ve been working hard and cannot wait to share everything with you!” lead singer Wil Wagner said of the single.
The Smith Street Band‘s latest album ‘Don’t Waste Your Anger’ debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart in April 2020. Over the last two years the band have also released three live albums, all of which landed in the ARIA Album Chart (#4, #11 & #30), and released a 10 year anniversary edition of their debut album ‘No One Gets Lost Anymore’ (#41).
