The Neighbourhood Release Chip Chrome & The Mono-tones Deluxe Album

Chip Chrome’s story isn’t over just yet, because The Neighbourhood just released the deluxe version of their album Chip Chrome & The Mono-Tones with four additional songs! The four new songs include “Stargazing,” “Over the Influence,” “Here We Go Again,” and “The Shining.” These four new tracks were added right in the beginning of the album that was originally released back in September.

The first song were introduced to from the deluxe album is “Stargazing”, with electric feel good vibes this song will make you wanna dance or go for a drive with your windows rolled down. The video that was released with the song shows frontman Jesse Rutherford and his other persona Chip Chrome running around Hollywood and meeting a few famous friends along the way. The following song “Over the Influence” is a dreamy track that makes us feel all sorts of emotions while Rutherford sings “Walked to the beat of my heart // Got me a shot with the stars // Now the only thing I’m wishin’ for is a little more space.” Jesse uses the melancholy “Here We Go Again” to allude to his feelings about the current state of American politics with lyrics like “You say you want it to be great again// But it was never that way to begin with.” The last new song we’re met with is “The Shining,” but don’t worry, it’s not about the horror film. The song “The Shining” is actually a beautiful love song for Jesse’s girlfriend Devon Carlson with lyrics “The way that you glow, everybody knows // You’ve got a heart of gold // And mine is always broken // So I’ll just paint it chrome // Yeah, I’ll just paint it chrome // So you’re not all alone.”

The Neighbourhood added four new amazing songs to what already was a great album to begin with, and we’re glad that Chip Chrome was able to complete his journey. It’s unsure if this is going to be the last time we see Jesse Rutherford shining in chrome body paint, but we have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll be seeing of Chip Chrome. The band recently announced that they will be playing a special livestream show performing the deluxe album on New Year’s Eve, tickets for the stream are currently on sale now.
