FUSE TV - Stream the First Song From The Wonder Years' Dan Campbell's Solo Project

Last week, The Wonder Years frontman Dan Campbell introduced the world to Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties, his new solo project. Campbell detailed a concept album called We Don't Have Each Other, which follows the story of a man named Aaron West who, as Campbell puts it, is having a bad year. Now you can hear the first song from We Don't Have Each Other, called "You Ain't No Saint," and read the first interview with Campbell regarding his solo project exclusively on Fuse.tv–check them out below!

Out July 8 via Hopeless Records, Campbell's first solo effort takes on a more folksy soundscape compared to The Wonder Years' "realist pop-punk." Rooted around acoustic guitars, horns, harmonicas and banjos–along with impressive drum work courtesy of The Wonder Years' Mike Kennedy–the album provides a challenging, rewarding experience as you discover more about Aaron West and his story with each listen. Enlisting the help of producer Ace Enders of The Early November, Campbell has crafted a deft, layered record with immense lasting value that will please fans of The Mountain Goats, The Weakerthans and good storytelling.

In "You Ain't No Saint," which comes close to the album's end, West finds himself in a bad state–"I've got bruises I can't place, I've been coughing out blood"–and thinking about his late father–"If my dad was here, I wonder if he'd even recognize me." The horns in the chorus offer an interesting backbone to an emotional track, but to get the full picture, you'll have to check out the whole album. The record can be pre-ordered now via physical or digital outlets. 

Read through our interview with Campbell below to learn more about Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties, including details about why he started the project, how it will impact his work with The Wonder Years, what he's doing to support the album release and much more.
