Despite the rock band’s latest announcement that it’s pushing back the release date of its third album Use Me from May 1 to July 10, Gunn stuck to her guns to “get some fun things out to hold you guys over” by debuting one of the project’s new tracks “Good to Be Alive.”
No, the song doesn’t reflect the current times of quarantining to combat the coronavirus pandemic, even though it touches on “wanting to slow down and enjoy the little things.” “Good to Be Alive” specifically hits close to home for the 26-year-old artist, who suffers from an autoimmune disease called ankylosing spondylitis. And one fan with autoimmune issues commented about how much her candor about health had resonated with her.
Gunn felt their collective pain of “It feels good to be alive, but it ain’t my life,” as she sang the blues acoustically, a style the lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist/keyboardist announced she’s unfamiliar with. But she proved that Pvris’ inability to deliver Use Me next month won’t prolong the healing their music brings, especially since fans already started exclaiming in the comments that “Good to Be Alive” is now their new favorite Pvris song.
