Jeff Rosenstock Announces ‘Worry’ and Releases “Wave Goodnight To Me”

Early last year, Jeff Rosenstock saw the release of his brilliant solo(ish) album We Cool? It dealt with issues of anxiety and nervousness for the 20-something-year-old soul. It was an album used as a coping mechanism for dealing with the uncertainty of the future. Themes like losing touch with your friends, remaining a punk after everyone you know left the scene, doing nothing but smoking weed, and jerking off all day. These are real issues of the millennial that were touched upon with We Cool? in a cooly self-deprecating manner. Fans have been waiting for a follow up testament to We Cool? for just over a year and some change.

But this week, SideOneDummy Records revealed the whereabouts of Jeff Rosenstock’s next album. The Rosenstock record will be called WORRY and is set to release October 14. WORRY is said to ditch Jeff Rosenstock’s self-deprecating comfort zone and focus on the external forces around us that contribute to anxiety and depression. Subjects like gentrification, police brutality and over-consumption will be addressed. As Jeff put it, “How am I supposed to explain love and happiness without addressing all the shit that tries to crush it?”

In addition to the announcement of WORRY, Jeff Rosenstock dropped a video for the single “Wave Goodnight To Me.” Inspired by a scene from The Simpsons (“Homer the Great”), the video addresses exclusivity and gentrification in a humorous manner. Watch a happy Jeff Rosenstock get shunned by strangers up in the video player above. Baby Pony Food (members of The Max Levine Ensemble) directs.

WORRY is available for pre-order now through SideOneDummy. Also up for pre-order are survival kits, which include items such as condoms, a flashlight, a travel corkscrew, band-aid kit and spray hand-sanitizer. Peep “Wave Goodnight To Me” up above in the player. Stream Jeff Rosenstock’s first single from WORRY, “Festival Song”, down below.
