Download New Song From the dB's

The dB's continue to take their sweet time with a comeback album, their first since 1987, but at least a few songs have trickled out in 2011. As you may recall, they released a 7" in conjunction with Record Store Day, and the A-side, "Picture Sleeve," was No. 2 on my list of the best songs released during the first half of the year. All we knew at that point was that the band planned to release a new album sometime in 2012. Now we know it will have 12 tracks and be called 'Falling Off the Sky.' There is still no release date, cover art or tracklist, but now we know it's being produced by the band with help from Scott Litt and jangle-pop god Mitch Easter. We also know there will be a tour. The band released another song this week, a free one for download to boot, and you can get it below. Enjoy "Revolution of the Mind." Yesterday I wrote about my apathy with the reunion of the Stone Roses. Hearing Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple together again takes me to the other end of the spectrum.
