the first track from the new album Port of Morrow, is available now on SimpleSong.TheShins.com.
Well, it’s official: The Shins are back. They just posted a brand-new single, the soaring, slightly meticulous “Simple Song,” to their official website. In addition, they announced that their new album, Port of Morrow, is due out March 20 with pre-orders available. This is the first we’ve heard from the band since 2007’sWincing the Night Away and, really, so far so good. It probably won’t appease those Shins fans waiting on another Oh, Inverted World, but anyone with a soft spot for James Mercer’s trademark croon and knack for indie pop should be more than satisfied.
