Excited for new material from The Shins? We first heard “Simple Song” from the Albuquerque band about a minute ago, but things move quickly. Now you can stream the b-side for “Simple Song,” titled “September.” It has got a subtle, country-inspired twang that we didn’t see coming from The Shins, but it is non-imposing and doesn’t throw off the usual sound too much. The band will be touring starting mid-April (dates of which can be viewed below), and Port of Morrow will be ready for your listening pleasure March 20th.
