Published Jun 20, 2014The Shins are getting back to the movie biz by contributing material to Zach Braff's upcoming Wish We Here soundtrack, and you can get an early preview now via a stream of the airy indie anthem "So Now What."
James Mercer's hallmark, china shop-delicate falsetto is in full form here, surrounded by swirling keyboard melodies, a breezy backbeat and wobbly, chorus pedal-heavy guitar strums. You can sample the song now via NPR.
As previously reported, the soundtrack arrives digitally and on CD July 15, while the vinyl hits stores August 5. You can hear the song in a movie theatre setting when the film opens July 18.
