Excited fans instantly took to social media to discuss possible directions the song could take given its name. One fan joked that “It’s just a funky cover of Bear Necessities,” referencing the similarity in title to the classic Disney song “The Bare Necessites,” from the 1967 animated film The Jungle Book.
The Chilis most played a benefit concert Friday at The Shrine in Los Angeles, but according to attendants, the band didn’t play any new music so the forthcoming song remains a mystery. If in fact “Dark Necessities” is indeed from a new album, it’ll be the band’s first full-length since 2011’s I’m With You.
