The Gaslight Anthem's "Miles Davis

& the Cool"

Brian Fallon on team colors, the mysterious Jackson and turning up the cool


The Gaslight Anthem's The '59 Sound, with its songs of first loves and first losses, can make an old man 23 again. And with a musical backdrop built on Springsteen-style drama-rock but also beholden to punk and soul, it can make that old guy move. At the heart of the record is "Miles Davis & the Cool," a song that's a study of several flavors of youthful desire: the burning, bursting need for another person and the need to escape so you can find your way home. Brian Fallon, songwriter and frontman for The Gaslight Anthem, breaks it all down for us.
