Dashboard Confessional has shared “Burning Heart,” the new single from their upcoming new album, All The Truth That I Can Tell. Stream the song below.
The song was written in a green room in Manchester, England in the winter of 2018 and then performed onstage an hour later.
“In the song, there’s this sense of, Okay, here we go! Are you ready? Because it’s starting!” says frontman Chris Carrabba. “This was the first one I wrote for the new album and it’s the one outlier of the bunch. That night, I wrote a song that I was so certain of. Not that it was just good, but that it was powerful in some way, too. The conceit of this song reflects the fact that I’m holding in a lot. I have a lot to say to the person I love in this moment. The idea in this setting is that I’m here to fight for this. I wanted a song that took a look at a hard conversation with a sense of although things aren’t right now, they may be able to be set right if it’s needed badly enough, wanted badly enough. In this setting, the conceit of the song is between two people in a relationship — well, you only hear one side. That’s the bigger part of the conceit: what if you only heard the one side of the conversation?”
The first all-new Dashboard Confessional LP in four years, All The Truth That I Can Tell arrives via Hidden Note Records/AWAL on February 25th; pre-orders/pre-saves are available now. The album will be available in a variety of formats, including digital, CD, cassette, standard black vinyl, and a number of limited-edition vinyl runs on offer exclusively via such retailers as Urban Outfitters, Walmart, Bandbox, and independent record stores.
Dashboard Confessional will then mark the arrival of the album with a pair of intimate solo acoustic album release shows, set for February 22nd at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and February 25th at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. Limited tickets for both dates go on sale today at 2p ET.
