“Maybe Your Heart’s Not in It No More” is a rambling roots rock tune interweaving electric and acoustic guitars with a backing organ. It features Jakob Dylan describing the feeling of losing touch with one’s muse. “It’s gone quiet it’s gone cold,” he laments. “Acting like someone’s you don’t know/ Used to rumble used to roar/ Whatever it’s doing it didn’t before/ Maybe your heart’s not in no more.”
In a press statement, Dylan explained the song is “a conversation you could find yourself having with your muse — one where you’re asking if they’ve changed their mind or have you changed yours. Are you still in sync or have you lost touch? You’ll be needing one another — so checking on each other’s condition now and then is a good idea.”
“Maybe Your Heart’s Not in It No More” follows April’s “Roots and Wings”. Exit Wounds marks The Wallflowers’ first album in nearly a decade. Pre-orders are ongoing, and you can check out the artwork and tracklist here.
