Jack Johnson shared a new single, “The Captain Is Drunk.” Johnson wrote and performed the song himself, delivering vocals, acoustic, 12-string and slide guitar.

Johnson drew inspiration for the song from his favorite adventure book series growing up, the Men Against The Sea Trilogy — which includes the famed Mutiny On The Bounty — by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall.

“With how divided our country felt leading up to the election, the stories from this series kept popping into my mind,” Johnson told Rolling Stone. “Big decisions on which way to sail in the middle of a storm as people disagree.”
