Published Nov 04, 2013We already knew that Broken Bells would be releasing their album After the Disco in January, and now the Shins' James Mercer and producer Danger Mouse have confirmed a release date and shared the lead single.
The album will be out on January 14 through Columbia Records. Prior to that, it will be available to pre-order from iTunes starting tomorrow (November 5).
Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the single "Holding on for Life." This cosmically poppy space-folk tune is available to stream below.
As previously confirmed, the band are releasing a short film alongside the album. The film is also called After the Disco, and the band shared a prologue to film last week. According to a press release, the whole film centres on "Oliver, a 9-to-5 ordinary Joe, who finds a spacesuit-clad Helen, the literal girl of his dreams." Stay tuned for further instalments.
