The Driver Era open up with their new song, 'Places'

The Driver Era have shared their new single, 'Places'.

It follows the duo's latest tracks 'Take Me Away', 'OMG Plz Don't Come Around' and 'flashdrive', and arrives ahead of their recently-postponed European tour, which is now pencilled in for November and December.

"'Places' is me opening up and becoming honest with myself and with another girl in a relationship, finding new territory and new emotions and not necessarily knowing how to navigate them," Rocky Lynch tells Dork. "That's primarily what 'Places' is. It's me opening up and being surprised by the confusion of it. 

"A lot of times I'll write a song about a situation or relationship or a girl after the fact, like 'I wish this still existed', or whatever. Maybe I won't see that person ever again. This was a situation where I was driving in my car to go see this girl, playing the song and driving through the neighbourhood and writing it as I'm experiencing these things. So it's actually one of the more crazy situations for me with releasing a song. The song almost isn't even finished, in a way. It's special, for sure."

Give it a listen below.
