Singled Out: The Alternate Routes

(antiMusic) Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Tim Warren, the lead singer of The Alternate Routes, tells us about "The Future's Nothing New" from their brand new album "A Sucker's Dream" (In stores today!). We now turn it over to Tim for the story:

"Lyrically, the song came together in a very random way, before we came up with the music. I asked the band to throw out one word each for 'the who, the what, the when, the where and the why'. Everyone blurted out something and that's where we started. I then strung all these together to form what became the song. The music of 'Future's Nothing New' is unique as it's the first song we wrote with Chip sitting behind the drum set. For a band who writes a lot of songs while we're traveling, what's unique about this,
is that we wrote it during some time OFF from the road, and at a time when we didn't NEED new material. We just wanted to write something new and interesting and the song came together very quickly.

The theme of 'future's nothing new' is to enjoy the moment that you're in - 'You need a little bit of lovin, just trying to get the good rush, but if you really saw it coming would it matter all that much?' The tool box we use is a convenient ode to the daily grind that we all are in. It's about just trying to break out of your own mode every once an a while - to feel human, and to feel special. Character wise, and as seen in our video, the song is a story about an attractive fortune teller who is board in her own ability to see the future, so she instead takes an interest in a guy, who she meets every night because her attraction to the guy provides the only experience she can't predict. "

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
