Creepin’ out the fog I start to sense that something’s wrong My heart is racing fast and beating out of time. Driving me insane, Why are you hardwired to my brain While I just skip along and tell myself I’m fine? I liked you better when you weren’t on my mind I liked you better when you weren’t on my mind Thought of you again and I don’t wanna tell my friends. Don’t wanna scare ‘em off and don’t wanna be judged But it’s so fuckin’ tiring being tired all the time With no indication that it’s ever gonna stop. It won’t let up. I liked you better when you weren’t on my mind I liked you better when you weren’t on my mind I don’t wanna concede that you’ll never leave Whether I like it or not I wish I was strong Can you just get the fuck out of here and let me get back to my day? Can you find another host on somethin’ and please be on your way? Thanks so much! TYSM!!! :-)


Tenuously beloved punk and EMMY-nominated Craig of the Creek songwriter Jeff Rosenstock is back today with “LIKED U BETTER,” his first new single since 2020’s critically acclaimed NO DREAM (unless you count 2021’s SKA DREAM, his ska re-interpretation of the album, or quarantine collection 2020 DUMP, both of which absolutely ruled).

“LIKED U BETTER” was recorded in the summer of 2022, in Los Angeles during a break in the band’s rigorous touring schedule and Rosenstock’s daily gig as a composer for Craig of the Creek. The band tracked at EastWest Studios (The Bodyguard Soundtrack, Californication) with longtime collaborator and Grammy nominee Jack Shirley (Shit Coffins, Jeff Rosenstock).
