That’s right, another highly awaited record is being digitally released on an unsuspecting public — but this time, there’s a twist.NYC mope-rockers the Walkmen have teamed up with Amie Street to release You and Me, their follow-up to 2006’s A Hundred Miles Off, three weeks before its physical release date for the more-than-a-bargain price of $5. And were that not enough to whet your whistle, you can stream album cut “Red Moon” below to assist in figuring out whether the record is worth your five-spot.

All proceeds from the downloads will go to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center — a pretty generous gesture for a band that once wrote a song titled “What’s in it for Me.” If you’d like to score some sweet tunes and help out for a good cause, click here to cop your copy of You and Me.
