Des Rocs has released a new song, “Imaginary Friends.” The song will arrive on his upcoming debut album, A Real Good Person in a Real Bad Place, due out Sept. 24.

Des Rocs says the song comes from a deep place within him.

“‘Imaginary Friends’ is a personal anthem that draws from a well of escapism,” he said in a statement. “For me this song brings up all the darkest parts of myself — the journey of the last few years — and deals with all that darkness in one sort of manic exhale.”
