Yesterday, The Offspring members Dexter Holland and Noodles were interviewed by the Los Angeles radio station KROQ, who premiered their new single “Days Go By” on the same day it began streaming. In regards to the song title and album’s recording progress, Holland states:
“It’s been a work in progress. We’ve been working on this record for a couple of years and this is one of the first ones we wrote. It’s gone through stages where we’ll play it for a while and say, you know that could be a little bit better… Usually people don’t know about that as we revise songs but now with the Internet it’s different. We were just in Japan and we were gonna debut a new song off the record and we knew that as soon as we played it in Japan it would be on YouTube… We’re basically playing it for the whole world.”
