On February 17, St. Louis, MO's Living Things will release their much-anticipated new album, Habeas Corpus, after a four-year wait. But impatient fans can get the record's first single as a SPIN.com exclusive download now!
"Let It Rain" is a memorable cut with distorted guitars, a head-bobbing groove, and vocalist Lillian Berlin's chanted chorus, "The sky is going black / Let's celebrate/ Let it rain!" Berlin explains: "I always looked at rain as being divine semen. There's a quote from Mark Twain, who's a big influence on me as a writer: 'A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.'"
