The wait is finally over. For the past few weeks, Simple Plan has been teasing us with sneaks from their upcoming fourth album, releasing 30-second song snippets and video clips that made us yell “Stop playing with us!” at our monitors. Finally, Simple Plan unveiled their first single, “Can’t Keep My Hands Off You,” Rivers Cuomo.
What starts off as a party-centric anthem that’d make Andrew W.K. proud turns into a romantic ode. How much do they like you, girl? Their “Blackberry’s filled up with email/[Their] phone calls go straight through to voicemail.” That’s love right there.
Fans of the band’s fusion of three-chord punk and pop melodies shouldn’t have anything to complain about with this one. We can already envision the collective “woah-ohs” during each verse when the band hits the road this summer for Warped Tour.
“Can’t Keep My Hands Off You” will appear on Simple Plan’s still-untitled fourth album, out June 21, as well as the upcoming Disney film Prom starring Aimee Teegarden of “Friday Night Lights.”
