Metric 'Pagans in Vegas' (album stream)
The lead-up to Canadian pop-rock vets Metric's Pagans in Vegas has been full of previews, but the time has come for the band to unveil the album in full. Though it officially arrives September 18 through MMI/Crystal Math/Universal, the record is streaming online now.

For those keeping score, we've already been treated to previews of cuts including "Too Bad, So Sad," "The Shade," "Fortunes," "Lie Lie Lie," and "Cascades." There's still plenty more to explore, though.

Down below, you can sample the synth-wriggling swerve-out "Celebrate," the subtle, nearly-New Order-style bass work on "For Kicks," the love-blinded nostalgia of "Blind Valentine," or the cinematic keyboard close-out "The Facade Part II."

"Who wants to celebrate," Emily Haines tunefully grills us on "Celebrate." You can give her your answer by streaming the latest Metric LP down below, courtesy of the New York Times.
