Good Charlotte Reflect On 'Thoughts and Prayers' Culture With Poignant New Single: Listen
Good Charlotte released their latest single "Prayers" today (Aug. 31), from their upcoming seventh studio album Generation Rx.
The song serves as a powerful commentary on the "thoughts and prayers" culture, with the message coming across strongly on verses such as, "None of this makes sense in this reality/God just leaves the room when I turn on my TV/I see a little girl who's crying 'cause she lost her family/All these strangers sending thoughts and prayers/She's buried underneath."
The band will also play the song live for the first time on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Sept. 13.
According to Good Charlotte, Generation Rx represents both a new chapter and full circle moment for the group and is "powered by punk spirit, rock songcrafting, and cinematic ambition, but still keeps the signature vitality and vulnerability of their formative years, while delivering an urgent, unafraid, and undeniable message befitting of twenty years in the music game."
