In advance their sixth studio album, Strange Little Birds, Garbage released the (very good) lead single “Empty” along with an accompanying music video. Now, Shirley Manson & Co. have released a second track from the record called “Even Though Our Love Is Doomed.” It’s a slow, deeply ominous track with Manson singing about the futility of long-term romance (“Even though our love is doomed / Even though we’re all messed up/ You’re the only thing worth fighting for / You’re the only thing worth dying for”).
