Listen: The Shins – “September” (B-Side)

6 Feb

 

Last month, The Shins released “Simple Song,” the lead single from the band’s upcoming studio album Port Of Morrow, along with the announcement that the song will be receiving 7″ honours next week. Today, the band premiered “September,” the official b-side to the 7″ single, along with a visual accompaniment that takes visual cues and inspiration from Jacob Escobedo’s artwork for the Port Of Morrow cover. You can give the song a listen above, courtesy of Record Store Day.

Along with the release of “September,” The Shins have announced additional tour dates, including a performance at this year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival. Give The Shins’ tour itinerary a look after the jump, with newly added dates in bold.
