EXCLUSIVE: Download Black Lips' First Single
WRITTEN BY

The Black Lips are no less rowdy these days -- check out this insane clip from their recent sold out NYC gig for proof -- but Arabia Mountain, their upcoming album, finds the quartet working with savvy producer Mark Ronson to tighten their rambunctious garage rock. Download the lead single, "Modern Art," here.

The twitchy, barely-two-minute track shows off the band's pop prowess with Kinks-like riffs and an instantly hummable chorus. But underneath it all, an acid-laced theremin wails, and singer-bassist Jared Swilley tells the story of checking out fancy artwork while being totally shitfaced.

Arabia Mountain is set for a June 7 release; the band kicks off a U.S. tour June 9 in San Diego.
