It’s telling that the lead single to Train’s eighth studio release, “Play That Song,” is based on the 1938 standard “Heart and Soul”: The group has quietly built a platinum-clad legacy on timeless melody (“Drops of Jupiter” anyone?). a girl a bottle a boat is stacked with soaring hooks and carpe diem sentiments, from the moment singer Patrick Monahan encourages us to “take this moment and put it in a glass” on “Drink Up” to the closing fade of “You Better Believe.” Add a dash of samba-inflected sunshine on “Lottery” and a full-throttle, love-struck anthem like “The News,” and a girl a bottle a boat is blast of positivity from a band that loves being the bearer of good news.
