The War On Drugs On World Cafe

Every sound on A Deeper Understanding is deliberate, and every dramatic build is brilliant. Hear three live versions of songs from the new album, recorded at the World Cafe studios in Philadelphia.
The War on Drugs' A Deeper Understanding is epic. Ambitious. Huge. Case in point: the first single they released, "Thinking of a Place," clocked in at over 11 minutes. But make no mistake – this isn't the work of a noodley jam band. Every sound is deliberate, every dynamic is thoughtful, and the build is brilliant. That's thanks in large part to the way lead singer and songwriter Adam Granduciel works.
