Patrick Stump's "Explode," Your Tuesday Morning Jump-Outta-Bed Song
Yesterday hiatusing Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump released "Explode," a twitchy, danceable track about a man so pressured by his midlife crisis, he's willing to blow up everything he knows. Its world-crashing-down mania is led by Stump's spirited vocal, which leaps octaves in a single bound while putting forth one of the saddest lyrics of the year: "If I'm never your hero, I can never let you down." Clip after the jump.
"Explode" is off Stump's debut solo album Soul Punk, which comes out this summer and which pretty much tops the list of albums that I really want to have come out already.
