Reverb-loving rock dramatists Merchandise have signed with 4AD and are marking the occasion by releasing a 14-minute-long song. Coming to download on January 15 and vinyl February 25, "Begging for Your Life / In the City Light" initially appeared on a tour-only split cassette with Thurston Moore's Chelsea Light Moving. The new physical release will be limited as well — there will be 1,000 copies of the etched, clear 12-inch. An edit can be heard above, emerging from a pile of brass into a dark corridor of echoing drums and quavering vocals, and eventually entering a maelstrom of comely noise. Merchandise are reportedly at work in their Tampa home studio, crafting their follow-up to 2013's Totale Night.
