Cold Summer
by Fuel

Album: Puppet Strings (2014)
  • This Brett Scallions penned song dates back to the early '00s, but only got recorded when producer Eddie Wohl and the band got to hear the tune. "I recorded that song probably three or four times already and had kinda lost hope in it," Scallions told Billboard magazine. "But then (Wohl) and the guys in the band heard it and said, 'Man, we gotta do that song!' 'Really?'"

    "I had a full-on hangover; it had been with me so long I was very indifferent about it.," the Fuel vocalist continued. "But we actually got it right this time. I played it for my wife and a number of other people and they were all like, 'Man, that's a hit! You've got to put this song on the record!' So I guess I'm outnumbered this time."
