It's great...a bit of a new direction for the Shins, though still definitely building on Wincing The Night Away's production style. Oh, and it sounds really different from the version they played live a few years ago - there's a completely new chorus, for one thing.
Oh, and there are some synths at the end that are just =worthy.

The Simple Song music video is free on iTunes for US / Canada, if you're into downloading videos and stuff.

I bought tickets yesterday to see them in May. I'm excited.

That free NPR app concert is tonight. I'm not going to be able to catch it, hopefully it's available somewhere afterward.
