Featured song: "Grapes of Wrath"
"Grapes of Wrath" (previously titled "Rock My Audible") is the third track from OK Human.
"Grapes of Wrath" is named for the American realist novel, The Grapes of Wrath, written by John Steinbeck and published in 1939. When asked about the song's origins in an interview with Audible, Rivers Cuomo said: "One night a few years ago I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I decided to listen to an audiobook on Audible. I did that from time to time anyway, but this was the first time I did it in the middle of the night. I stayed up for a couple hours, just listening and listening to The Grapes of Wrath. I did not get good sleep, but it was a pretty magical experience. There’s something about that state of the brain, that time of night—I’m able to drift into this more imaginative state and really enter the world of the writer’s imagination."
