Just hours before Irish rock band Snow Patrol played an intimate tour opener at New York City's 600-capacity Bowery Ballroom, frontman Gary Lightbody spoke with SPIN.com about "Crack the Shutters," the new single from his group's latest album, A Hundred Million Suns.

Below, watch Lightbody -- a lanky, joke-cracking fellow -- discuss the anthemic, piano-driven track's creation and meaning. "It's the most natural song on the record," he says of "Crack the Shutters." "And it's about the most natural thing in the world."
