Dashboard Confessional's eighth album, All The Truth That I Can Tell, is due out next month, and the latest single is "Burning Heart," another stripped-back, deeply-felt acoustic song that hearkens back to the band's early days. "In the song, there’s this sense of, Okay, here we go! Are you ready? Because it’s starting!" Chris Carrabba says. "This was the first one I wrote for the new album and it’s the one outlier of the bunch. That night, I wrote a song that I was so certain of. Not that it was just good, but that it was powerful in some way, too. The conceit of this song reflects the fact that I’m holding in a lot. I have a lot to say to the person I love in this moment. The idea in this setting is that I’m here to fight for this. I wanted a song that took a look at a hard conversation with a sense of although things aren’t right now, they may be able to be set right if it’s needed badly enough, wanted badly enough. In this setting, the conceit of the song is between two people in a relationship -- well, you only hear one side. That’s the bigger part of the conceit: what if you only heard the one side of the conversation?"
