Detroit Duo, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are set to release their sophomore LP, The Speed of Things next month. In the meantime, the guys have just released a brand new track – “War Zone.”
“War Zone was the last song written for “The Speed Of Things” and is about a character who wakes up (or is dreaming of being?) in a warring region. It is unclear whether this “war” is a literal image, or more of a metaphor for the disconnectedness that the narrator is suffering from. “The Speed Of Things” focuses on a current phenomenon that author Douglas Rushkoff has coined “Present Shock.” says DEJJ’s Josh Epstein of the inspiration behind the track.
