Stream Gang of Four’s New Single, ‘Stranded’

The post-punk greats' new album is set for release on February 24

When SPIN spoke to Gang of Four’s sole remaining original member Andy Gill, he called the lineup changes “business as usual.” That may be so, but we can’t help but read a little bit into the title of the band’s latest single, “Stranded.” Set to appear on Gang of Four’s What Happens Next LP (out next week via Metropolis), the song ambles along for close to four minutes and does the requisite amount of buzzing and heavy guitar work required of a Gang of Four track in 2015, which is to say that it sounds comfortably rooted in the band’s past while also smoothing out the edges in a surprisingly accessible way. Stream “Stranded” below (via Billboard) and look for What Happens Next on Tuesday.
