Drug

Songfacts®:

  • D is the fourth full-length studio album by the Texan band White Denim. It was released by Downtown Records on May 24, 2011. Despite receiving good reviews from most music critics, vocalist/guitarist James Petralli was critical of this track. He told UK music magazine the NME: "I'm glad that it exists, I'm glad we recorded it, but there are tunes on this record I like more than 'drug.' What's going on lyrically is almost painfully obvious, it's about social sedation, a Brave New World situation where things that you collect define you as a person. It's a waste of time. Drug is a ridiculous piece of music, I think."
