Drive-By Truckers released a new politically-charged song “The Perilous Night” fittingly on election day, featuring commentary from Patterson Hood and the band on the recent political climate.

On the song, Hood told Rolling Stone, “A lot of what I’m writing is deeply personal stuff, not that I don’t consider this stuff personal, because I do, I totally do. But the new songs are less blatantly political.”

“The Perilous Night” will be officially released on December 15 along with a live recording of “What It Means” with portions of the proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
