As if supporting Harry Styles every night of his Love on Tour, and releasing four collaborative tracks with Serengeti over the last year wasn’t enough, Jenny Lewis has found yet another way to help us shake off our collective 2021 blues: The brand new “Puppy and a Truck,” out today and available via Loves Way.
Written by Jenny and produced by Dave Cobb, “Puppy and a Truck” is an ode to letting go of negativity and focusing on life’s simple joys. With wistful swells of pedal steel and irresistibly buoyant percussion, the track offers a few words of advice for these upside-down times:
My 40s are kicking my ass
And handing em to me in a margarita glass….
Like a shot of good luck
I got a puppy and a truck
If you feel like giving up
Get a puppy and a truck
