Spector - Driving Home for Halloween

Coinciding with the upcoming spooky season, Spector have returned with their brand new single Driving Home for Halloween. Taken from their recently announced new album 'Here Come the Early Nights', the track's self reflective lyrics and scintillating melodies carve their way through themes of life, death, and love in mystifying fashion. Speaking about the track in more detail, vocalist Fred Macpherson explains, “Driving Home for Halloween isn’t just a terrible Chris Rea pun. It’s a song about life, death and love in the time of Find My Friends. If Goosebumps books were romance novels this might be what they sound like. It’s for everyone whose life feels static even with the world turning on its axis at a thousand miles an hour”. Guitarist Jed Cullen adds, “On the last day of recording, Jen had just finished her backing vocals and was about to leave. We had precious little time left to finish the album, but I had this really strong feeling we needed to open up the ‘Driving Home for Halloween’ session and ask her to scream along the guitar riff through Dimitri’s Plasma Pedal. I was a little worried it wouldn’t come off but naturally she nailed it and it sounded amazing on the first try!” Take a listen for yourselves below.
