And it's pretty good!

It's been two years since Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz shaved off his iconic, decades-old dreadlocks, and if you're like me, you've spent those two years worrying that he lost his superpowers as a master of plucky, versatile adult alternative tunes. Fortunately, the Crows are back sans dreads, and they still sound pretty damn good.

The long-running band have announced a new EP called Butter Miracle, Suite One, and it will offer four new tunes from the group. Among them is "Elevator Boots," which you can stream below.

In a press release, the song is described as "a glam look at life on the road in a band, awash in the thrill, the isolation, and the cleansing power of rock and roll." It sounds a lot like Counting Crows.

Listen to "Elevator Boots" below. 

Butter Miracle, Suite One, produced by Brian Deck, will arrive on May 21 via BMG

Butter Miracle, Suite One:

1. The Tall Grass
2. Elevator Boots
3. Angel of 14th Street
4. Bobby and the Rat-Kings
