Sum 41 have released an emotionally charged ballad with 'Never There'. Dedicated to single parents everywhere, the song is a personal letter from lead singer Deryck Whibley. 'Never There' is one of the band’s heaviest songs to date, but in an entirely different way. This marks the third single from upcoming album Order In Decline, out July 19th.
“I never wanted to write this song, it just kind of poured out of me”, said Whibley. “I tried to fight it at first but there was no stopping it. I could tell I was writing about my dad, who I’ve never met and throughout my life it has always been a subject that I don’t really think about or care about. It has never really bothered me and when I started thinking about why it never bothered me, I realized it was because my mum was so great and I have such a loving relationship with her. She was so strong as a single mother for my whole life that I never needed to think about my dad.”
