The song mixes its heavy, southern rock-influenced acoustic guitars with a foot-stomping, electric groove, as lead singer Jarred Weeks fesses up to his short-term intentions with a young woman: "I have to fake it / I'd leave if I could / I'm not in love but the sex is good / You can't mistake it / 'Cause it's understood / I'm not in love, but the sex is good."
The Mississippi-based band, best known for the smash hit 'Addicted' from their 2008 self-titled album, recently talked to Billboard about the more sophisticated music and influences on their new record. "One of the strongest things that we're proud of here is our Southern heritage," Weeks explains. "We've got a little more in-depth than the Southern twang that made Saving Abel who it was when 'Addicted' came out."
Saving Abel are currently on tour in support of their 2010 album 'Miss America,' whose title and pin-up girl clad cover are intended as the band's way of giving something back to our overseas troops. You can decide for yourself if 'The Sex Is Good' over on AOL Radio's New Rock First station.
