The Shins To Release New Album Wincing The Night Away In January + Single + Track List
By: Spacelab Research Staff Sub Pop Records has talked the talk on the new Shins album and this is what they've said: it's called Wincing The Night Away, it was recorded this summer at Supernatural Sound in Oregon, and you'll have to wait until January to get your hot little hands on it!
Oh, the anguish. That's three full months from the time of this being published. That's too long, you say? What can we get now, you say? Why are you asking Donald Rumsfeld-style leading questions, you say? Because it's the perfect transition to the next paragraph! And I do it better than Donald Rumsfeld!
There are goods coming out as early as next month. On November 14th, you can get Phantom Limb as an iTunes single with two b-sides. Then again on CD on November 21st, and 7" vinyl on December 12th.
Wincing The Night Away is the follow-up to the band's 2003 release Chutes To Narrow, which broke the Albequerque, New Mexico band out on the national and international scene with stand-out tracks like So Says I and New Slang.
The Shins appear ready to release the album right now, but are willing to wait, saying, "Trust us if we had our way it would be out next week, but "The Man" has seen fit to do otherwise. The good folks at Sub Pop have scheduled this like a finely tuned machine, and we have all the confidence in the world that January is the magic month for a reason. We are excited."
The band has also been busy with their new video, shot by people in the crowd at the Austin City Limits festival in September. This was part of an experiment with Current TV, and it appears to be going so well that Current TV decided to turn it into a bigger documentary. No word on a release date yet.
They're also playing the Sub Pop Showcase at the CMJ Marathon, alongside The Thermals, CSS, The Album Leaf, Oxford Collapse, The Elected & Loney, Dear on November 2nd at the Bowery Ballroom.
