Goo Goo Dolls have released a new song, “Miracle Pill,” via Warner Records. The song will be featured on the band’s new album. also titled “Miracle Pill,” which is set to be released this fall.
” ‘Miracle Pill’ is a metaphor for the instant gratification and relief we seek from our own circumstances,” Rzeznik said. “Are your sad? Take a pill. Are you lonely? Get popular on social media. The fact of the matter is no one has 50 friends, much less 5,000. I’m just trying to articulate my observations of the second decade of the 21st century, with all its angst, avarice, confusion and insecurities. We are inundated by bullshit, cheap shiny objects, and false solutions to every problem and desire we have. I have no answers to these questions, but I don’t believe hero worship, life hacks, short cuts and escapism are the answers. I just want to make a real connection with real people in real time.”
The Goo Goo Dolls are currently touring the U.S. co-headlining a series of summer dates with Train.
