Published Feb 08, 2016The Shins have been laying pretty low since wrapping up the tour cycle behind 2012's Port of Morrow, though the band did contribute music to Zach Braff's 2014 flick Wish I Was Here and frontman James Mercer reteamed with Danger Mouse for a second Broken Bells record that same year. Now, it seems like something is brewing back at the Shins' camp.
In a cryptic Instagram post, the group shared a brief snippet of a new song with the mysterious set of hashtags: #shinstagram #tokeemifyougotem #auralapothecary #lordelizabeth
The band's last record arrived via Aural Apothecary, and while no official announcement of a new album has been issued, there's certainly something in the works.
Check out the post below to give the brief musical offering a listen and try to decipher what the mysterious message might mean.
