It seems like a new album from Robert DeLong is released every three years and sticking to that timeline, he’s just released ‘Walk Like Me’ on November 19th. The third studio album from DeLong follows up 2018’s EP ‘See You In The Future’ and his last full-length ‘In The Cards’ that was released in 2015. ‘Walk Like Me’ captures many of the emotions and feelings DeLong went through after ending a nearly 10-year long relationship. “It’s one of the more autobiographical records in a lot of ways,” DeLong stated, “obviously that’s a huge part of my life and there’s a lot of that in there. Certainly, there are songs explicitly about that and also the aftermath. You lose your mind for a good six months after something like that because your safety net is gone and your whole life is changed.” While the experience was the main instigating factor of the music, DeLong found inspiration from other experiences and collaborated with the likes of Ashe, Lights, Sir Sly, K.Flay, Tim Pagnotta and Fast Friends. DeLong just completed a brief tour with Grabbitz and will perform across the U.S. at the beginning of 2022.
DeLong spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about the new album, his new crypto coin, NFTs, the topic of death and more.
