I can't remember the last time I heard something new from The Shins. Well, actually, I can. If you exclude Broken Bells, it was approximately 5 years ago, when their third album Wincing the Night Away was released.
Well, prepare yourselves folks! The Shins have just released the first song off their upcoming Port of Morrow. "Simple Song" captures everything we'd expect from The Shins -- there's nothing new or experimental here, just a very pretty bridge. Simple song, indeed!
You can catch a stream and pre-order the album over on The Shins' website.
