Rock and roll band Granite Rose have teamed up with HM Magazine to debut their new documentary, The Sound of a City. The short film follows the band through the process of recording their new album, Worlds Apart, set to drop on July 7. Shot and edited by HM photographer Kyle Lehman, we spoke with vocalist Nick Anderson about the new album and film.

“They told us we were crazy for trying to do six songs in 12 hours, but we wanted it to be real. We wanted mistakes, we wanted imperfections, we wanted real rock and roll. That’s what makes this record different.  You don’t just hear this music, you feel it.”

The band plans to release the first single from that album, the title track “Worlds Apart,” on June 14.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
