|The Low Anthem|
Why? Apparently, Bright Eyes' "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" blew away the band.
"It knocked my socks off,” Low Anthem frontman Ben Knox Miller told Paste.
When I encountered Mogis in the studio on a spring afternoon for our interview, I caught a tiny bit of the new album. Apparently, he had just gotten the record and had begun mixing it that morning.
I really liked the Low Anthem's last record, "Oh My God, Charlie Darwin," so I've been interested to hear what they've come up with.
Today, we get to hear the fruits of the band's labors. The track "Ghost Woman Blues" - a slow, contemplative, eerie tune - sees the light of day.
You can stream it right here:
I really like the track. If the rest of the album, "Smart Flesh," is as good as this, we'll have a damn good record on our hands. The album will drop Feb. 22 on Nonesuch.
