LISTEN: Broken Bells Release New Song
Hear "Meyrin Fields," a b-side that comes out tomorrow from the James Mercer and Danger Mouse project.
While there’s no specific timeline for a second album from Broken Bells, the collaboration between Shins frontman James Mercer and producer Danger Mouse, a brand new song from the duo hit MySpace today, and will be on sale tomorrow (Oct. 26). Hear “Meyrin Fields” below.
The track is a bit more abrasive than the fare from the duo’s self-titled debut album, layered with squelchy noise and jarring percussion, and featuring a paranoid, twitchy vocal performance from Mercer, who shuns his sugary falsetto for near-spoken verses. It’s not as hot as having Mad Men bombshell Christina Hendricks in your video, but solid nonetheless.
