The Shins released their last record in 2012, Port of Morrow. Now, however, it seems as though new material is on its way. In a “#shinstagram” post tagged under the name of James Mercer’s record label, Aural Apothecary, the band released a snippet yesterday of what sounds like new music. Hear it below.
Since Port of Morrow, the Shins have released a new song, “So Now What,” for the soundtrack for Zach Braff’s film Wish I Was Here in 2014. Mercer also released After the Disco with Broken Bells, his duo with Danger Mouse that year. Mercer’s band before the Shins, Flake Music, also reissued the 1997 album When You Land, It’s Time to Return,.
