The song comes with a video clip directed by Paris Visone and edited by Jamieson Mundy which you can watch below.
“’20 Years From Now’ is a song we wrote and recorded during the ‘Makes Me Sick’ album sessions. We loved the song and felt it stood out in a different way than the rest so instead of squeezing it on the album, we wanted to give it a life of it’s own.“
You can purchase the track on iTunes [Here].
Watch the band belt out ‘Forrest‘, ‘Birthdays‘, ‘Sigourney Weaver‘ and a cover of ‘Territorial Pissings‘.
If you missed it, the band announced the first Pool House Party at Coburg Velodrome in Melbourne on Saturday 17th March. Tickets are on sale now. More additions to the lineup will be announced soon.

A song about how we treat memories of the people we love, this slow-burning number’s instrumentation reflects its pensive lyrical themes.
“The idea for the song came about when I found myself not being able to remember some my moments with an ex-lover. It was as if those moments never existed. And I found it strange that for someone with whom at the time you felt so connected to, someone you allowed inside your walls, memories with them you would think be permanent, yet you cannot seem to remember most of it.“
On the music video, director Jacky Lee shared: “I wanted the camera to mimic that of someone eyes, observing all these little things that are going on… like you are people-watching. I wanted the audience to feel a sense of familiarity and nostalgia while watching the video. The whole circle (frame) inspiration came about when I started to think about how to metaphorically represent topics like how life shouldn’t be a boring cycle day after day, embracing the little things in life even if they are not perfect, having a second chance in life, and how a lot of people around me are so caught up in the rat race.”

Recorded this November in Brooklyn, NY, with producer Josh Kaufman, ‘Entitlement Crew‘ b/w ‘A Snake In The Shower‘ marks the first new music from The Hold Steady in nearly four years as well as the first studio recording to feature longtime keyboard player Franz Nicolay since 2008’s beloved fourth album, ‘Stay Positive‘. Additional performers include Stuart Bogie, Michael Leonhart, and Annie Nero.
The album is set for release on February 2nd through I OH YOU.
