Nickelback shared the music video for their recently released single, These days, from the new upcoming album, Roll, is set to arrive on November 18 via BMG.
The video shows the Canadian hard rockers reflecting on fond memories via a collection of exclusive photos and videos from the band’s archives.
These days is a nostalgic, syrupy ballad perfectly set up for waving lighters through the air, with reflective lyrics reminiscent of “the good old days” of the band’s youth, like staying out of curfew, falling in love for the first time, and attending Guns ‘N Roses concerts with someone special.
Vocalist Chad Kroeger sings in his signature raspy timbre: “Remember when the streetlights came on, we had to be home / Remember when Elm Street came up, I couldn’t watch it alone / Remember every joke we made, and star sixty- new”.

Serving as the second single from the new album, These days is far from Get Rollinthe first release of , the track full of riffs Saint Quentinwhich was unveiled in September.
Speaking to DJ Terrie Carr at New Jersey radio station 105.5 WDHA about San Quentin’s lyrical inspiration, Kroeger explained, “I met the [San Quentin prison] guard at a party, and I couldn’t believe how young he was. I was, like, ‘There’s just no way you’re the manager of San Quentin!’ and everyone was, like, ‘Yup. He is.’
“[Restaurateur, author, and TV presenter] Guy Fieri is a friend of mine, and I was at his birthday party a few years ago. And all the time we were talking, I’m like, [laughs] I’m talking to this guy, but in my head all I could think about was, ‘I’m going to write a song called San Quentin’. That’s it.’ And I pasted it in my notes on my phone. And then after the riff was done, I think I yelled this line, ‘Can someone please keep me out of San Quentin?’ And we just took it from there.”
