Wow - 100% agree - it was immediately the same for me - like holy fuck they caught him in his car AND he was tracking a promo with vocals. IMHO given the timing I'd say 90% chance this is the PPH track, the other 10% being it's about to drop as a single. I guess with PPH they had to have been recording - but how much is what I keep wondering...

So that's 3 new songs so far!
- "Keep Your Pretty Promise to Yourself"
- "Run With Me"
- "The Sky Is A Neighborhood"

I wonder if they'll play this or anything else at Bottle Rock in 2 weeks... (anybody else going? PB meetup!?)
Im at Bottlerock....message me and we can sort out meeting up

The reddit post tells me it was played live pretty much as recorded in the studio. Since Dave was called in to sub for Hetfield way later than 1 month ago when it was posted on Reddit, then it wasn't especially made acoustic for 4 A Cure, so it was acoustic already - and therefore an immediate choice for that gig.

Whether that Reddit reviewing in the car is heading to a final mix for PPH or something else who knows, but in my opinion the co-incidence of catching Dave in his car at a set of lights AND it also being the song being played by Dave in the car, says it was very much a deliberately acoustic work in progress for something due shortly, and that that wasn't the 4AC gig.

And also that he fixes his hair at a stoplight!

It's a wonder he is as cool as he is if this is what people do to him in "his own time." True testament to his upbringing and character.

I hate myself for thinking like this but after multiple listens this song really is not one of their best IMO.

Of course production could bring some life into it, and most likely will, but the song itself lacks in melody, arrangement and energy - all of which made me love the FF back in the day.

Oh well said it before, will say it again, things change and in no way is that a bad thing!

I don't know. I agree with others that it isn't loud enough for a first single, but we are assuming that the acustic version is the same as an album version.

Watch at 1.5 speed - even better! A real groove.

Also, some of the lyrics are "Gotta get some sleep somehow" (sounds like the 2nd time he repeats it most times)

liking what I've heard so far, not sure what type of song it will end up being, heavy or slower acoustic style. Maybe both!

I think it's aight. I usually expect them to preview the very best songs ahead of the album, and whilst I get the anthemic side of it and it has definitely been a grower, it's a bit cheesy sounding and not one of their best. The straight up screamy-ness has grown on me, but it also kind of reminds me a when Dave would take the piss out of Creed..

I also really don't like the metaphor 'the sky is a neighborhood', which is a shame as that's the title of the song! I don't really get what it means and don't think it sounds cool enough or up to enough interpretation to account for that. I guess after you've learned to walk, run and fly it gets hard to come up with this shit

Heard it live tonight, still think it definitely is not one of their best. Not even close. It could be cool as a studio version if the Kills vocalist really is on the record as well like DG told the crowd tonight but still, a sub par song in the vein of Wheels (which we also got).

La Dee Da on the other hand was really good live.

I felt that way when we first heard it, but the more I hear it, the more I think the studio version has a chance to be a nice, psychedelic-influenced track. Especially if Rami's part is heavily featured, which it seems based on performances. Not a top-tier Foo song (it certainly doesn't grab you like La Dee Da) but I like it.

Lyrics certainly leave something to be desired, though.

I like what I have heard so far. Just wish we had a clearer version! Cant wait until the record comes next month!

As for the meaning, I think it's cool. In my mind, he's talking about all the things floating around in your head and things that worry or keep you up at night. At least, that's what I'm getting out of it.

I think that's my biggest gripe with it. I'm expecting his vocals to sound way better on the recording than live as is the case now that he's gotten older, but those lyrics ain't gonna change.

Happy to hold out final judgement until the studio version, though. Personally I think the production in Run is absolutely gorgeous. Totally makes the song for me. I'm excited to see how the rest of the album sounds.

I like the meaning too, I just think saying "the sky is a neighborhood" is a really clunky way to come around to that. I don't have a gripe with the chorus, especially with the backing vocals from T and Shifty. But the verses are just a little off for me.

I hear ya. When I first heard the title, thought it was odd, but I like that its odd! Haha!

Just can't wait to hear what the studio version is gonna sound like.

I was sort of hoping there might not be any guest artists this time. Oh well, I still can't wait to hear the studio version, I really love the feel of this song so far, Even if the title is kinda dumb.
