LOS ANGELES – The Backseat Lovers have shared their new single, “Slowing Down” off the band’s upcoming album, Waiting to Spill.

“Slowing down is a song that came together in a time where all four of us needed it,” said lead singer Joshua Harmon. “I had begun to write the beginning of the song just days before a writing retreat that we had decided to go on in the deep mountains. Over the few days at the cabin, the song was born out of feelings of fear, faded dreams seeping into our mornings, and a personal worry that I was slowing down the person I loved.”

The song is from the band’s new album, Waiting to Spill, which will be released on Oct. 28 by Capitol Records.

Waiting to Spill is the follow-up to the group’s 2019 debut, When We Were Friends. Fans who pre-order the digital version of Waiting to Spill will receive, “Slowing Down,” “Close Your Eyes” plus the first single, “Growing/Dying.”

The album will be released in digital, vinyl and CD formats. In addition to the standard black vinyl, there will be a dark green vinyl edition, available only from the band’s online store, and a clear vinyl version, which can be found at indie retailers.

The Backseat Lovers will be performing the album live, in its entirety, on a seven-city fall tour, which was announced last week. The headline run will kick off on Nov. 7 at Brooklyn Steel in New York and include shows in Chicago, Saint Paul, Atlanta, Austin and Los Angeles. It will conclude with two shows in the band’s hometown of Salt Lake City. The group will also be touring in 2023.
