It's been four years since The Pains of Being Pure at Heart released their final album. In that time, singer Kip Berman left Brooklyn for Princeton, NJ and had two kids. His new musical project, The Natvral, reflects that change. The first single off of the upcoming album, "Why Don't You Come Out Anymore?," is about all the life changes that come with getting older and staying in a lot more. It's a more standard folk rock song, more along the lines of an alt-rock Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. It's also a much bigger sound than his previous band. It shows a level of happiness despite being about losing a lot of the things that make you you, while morphing into a new version of yourself without even realizing it.
