The band marked the announcement of ‘Things Are Great’ – the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Why Are You Ok’ – by sharing its lead single, ‘Crutch’.
Frontman Ben Bridwell explained of the track: “I think like a lot of my songs, ‘Crutch’ starts with something from my real life. Obviously ‘Crutch’ means some of the things that I was dependent on. My relationship for one. I think I wanted to say, ‘I’ve got a crush on you,’ and I thought it was funny how relationships also feel like crutches.”
He continued: “I feel like everybody has had a time when nothing goes right and you still have to carry on. I think that feeling hits you in this song even if you don’t know what the specifics are.”
Back in 2017, two members of Band Of Horses – guitarist Tyler Ramsey and bassist Bill Reynolds – departed the group within hours of one another. Ramsey left to pursue a solo career, while Reynolds shifted his focus to record production and photography.
