“Doing It For The Money” is the leading single off of Foster the People’s EP “III” and debuted on Virgin Radio UK on April 27th, 2017. The EP is in anticipation of the band’s third studio album which is coming out later this year.
The song has distinctly different styles from verse to chorus; the verses are rhythmically spoken to a beat, while the chorus is upbeat and bursting instrumentally.
The lyrics refer to living life to the fullest and being driven by experiences, whether positive or negative, as opposed to money. They can be related to the band’s statement from the release of the EP:
"One of my favorite things about music is that it’s unifying. We wrote these songs to reflect joy in a time where people have needed it more than ever and we thought it was a good time to share them with you."
The statement’s themes of finding joy and unity can be seen in the song, the latter particularly present with the use of “we” throughout the song.
