RNR News and Notes

The New Pornographers have debuted a new video for “Falling Down The Stairs Of Your Smile” - the first single taken from the group’s new album, In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights (due out September 27) 

 

Frontman and songwriter A.C. Newman said of the song:  

“There are so many songs like ‘the something of love’—you know, there’s ‘The Book of Love,’ ‘The Freeway of Love’...Then I thought of ‘falling down the stairs of your love,’ and I thought, that kind of works. I think it has that element of how do you deal with the ideas of love and happiness in this world right now? When current events are stressful, that makes a stress on people’s relationships, and you’re trying to figure out how to be happy in this loving relationship in this world that seems ugly at every turn, which is not as easy as it seems. Of course, ‘love’ ultimately morphed into ‘smile,’ but I like the metaphor of love as something that you fall down.”

The band is set to tour North America this fall in support of the new record, including two DC dates - a sold out show at the 930 Club on November 5 and a show at The Lincoln Theatre on November 6
