“SIMPLE SONG” B-SIDE “SEPTEMBER” STREAMING NOW AT recordstoreday.com
PORT OF MORROW OUT MARCH 20 ON AURAL APOTHECARY/COLUMBIA
The Shins have confirmed another leg of U.S. headline dates in support of the band’s upcoming fourth album Port Of Morrow, out March 20 on Aural Apothecary/Columbia.
Port Of Morrow is currently available for pre-order and its release has been preceded by first single “Simple Song,” out now and hailed in a 4-star ROLLING STONE single review as “magnificent” with “an ascending melody (that) will trail you like a double-espresso buzz.”
As a very special pre-tour present to their beloved fans, The Shins are offering a free stream of “September,” the B-Side to their current smash single “Simple Song,” as a free stream with accompanying custom made visuals inspired by and drawing upon Jacob Escobedo’s artwork for Port Of Morrow.
The video will be streaming at recordstoreday.com as well as on the virtual reel to reel player at theshins.com. It will be fully shareable and embeddable.
