The truth might hurt, but Philly minstrels Dr. Dog make it feel oh-so-good in their vintage-style video for their soulful new single, The Truth. The mellow track is off their forthcoming album, B-Room, the follow-up to last year’s Be The Void. The new album is due out October 1 via Anti-, but the sextet is giving fans an early glimpse of what’s to come.
 
Recorded primarily in live takes, B-Room is poised to showcase some of Dr. Dog’s most streamlined and soulful writing to date. The Truth certainly fits that mold. With its Gamble And Huff-inspired melodies and simplicity, the track breezily pays homage to the kings and queens of Philly soul while allowing the boys to keep carving out a path of their own. Dr. Dog will be bringing their feel-good sounds to the stage this fall when they team up with The Lumineers for a North American tour. Check out The Truth and Dr. Dog’s forthcoming tour dates below.
