"Save Me, San Francisco" is the title track from Train's fifth, their first release in nearly four years. "It's kind of like we're re-introducing the band to everybody," lead guitarist Jimmy Stafford told Billboard
. "We just wanted to get back to our roots on this record. We wanted to do things a little more stripped-down like our first album and get back to the whole San Francisco vibe."
The strategy worked: Train landed a huge hit with the album's first single, "Hey Soul Sister
," and got right back on track.
