It hasn’t been long since the release of their comeback song, Makeshift Love, and now Good Charlotte have given us one more treat! 40 oz. Dream is the new single of the band, which will be featured in their upcoming album, Youth Authority.
If all tracks in the new record sound anything like this one, then we’re in for a nostalgia ride! If you were born in the ‘80s or the ‘90s, this song is bound to make you feel warm inside. 40 oz. Dream takes us back to 2003 when MTV was still a thing and punk rock was actually alive and popular.
To say that I love this song is an understatement. Its Californian vintage vibe brings to mind bittersweet memories and makes me sad for the kids that never got to experience music as I did; way before YouTube and iTunes, when people actually lived life instead of capturing it on selfies.
Josh Madden, who directed the lyric video, talked about the idea behind the clip. “I’m a big fan of Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book, and when the guys played me this song, it was the first thing I thought about – I started drawing right away,” he told the Rolling Stone.
One thing’s for sure; GC still knows how to throw a party and 40 oz. Dream will rule the summer!
* Good Charlotte’s Youth Authority is set for release on 15 July.
