Fans of The War On Drugs haven’t received any new music from the rock band since their cabin fever-driven masterpiece that was 2014’s Lost In The Dream. On Friday, the rock band returned with their first single in just over three years with an easygoing, 10-minute track titled, “Thinking Of A Place.”

As heard in the clip below, the new song’s dreamy foundation is built on layers of soft guitar, hazy keyboards and even an added harmonica close to the song’s 7:30 minute mark to almost make it feel like a drawn out Springsteen tune.

Back on March 21, the group had announced that the new single would be available for purchase as a 12" at indie retailers for Record Store Day this year. The band has yet to give any official announcement on when the follow-up album to Lost In The Dream may arrive, although they have provided some updates in the form of photos from the studio onto their social media outlets.

After the 2014 release of the critically acclaimed LP, the band signed a two-album deal with Atlantic Records the following year.
