“These songs should make you want to fall in love with somebody, or miss somebody, or want to do something outrageous with your life,” says Justin Furstenfeld, vocalist and lyricist for the unstoppable alt-rock band Blue October. He’s talking about the tracks on the quintet’s tenth studio album, This Is What I Live For, recently released on October 23rd, 2020.
How does it feel to have a Top 10 single with “Oh My My,” your first Top 10 single since 2009? “Honestly, I’m blown away. We started releasing our albums independently several years ago. It’s good to see that it doesn’t matter what label you’re on. As long as you’re writing good songs you have chance to be heard. Hopefully that inspires others.”
