The single, ‘Mildenhall’, features a slow building, acoustic melody and subtle percussion undertones, married by a conversational song-writing style. Shot in various areas of London, the accompanying lyric video is a black and white, stark yet extremely beautiful display. Along with the brand new single, The Shins have also revealed ‘Name For You‘ and ‘Dead Alive‘ from their upcoming fifth studio album.
Heartworms is set for release on Friday, March 10 and will be self produced by frontman James Mercer, the first since the band’s 2001 release Oh, Inverted World. You can pre-order it here.
