James Mercer is back, ladies and gentlemen. In classic Shins fashion, the new single “Simple Song” is the quintessential track that all of us will enjoy. The single is officially released today, January 10th, with the album pre-order available right now. The hotly anticipated new release from the shins, entitled Port of Morrow is due on March 20th. “Simple Song” reminds me so much of the simple (for lack of a better word) James Mercer…before he collaborated with Danger Mouse and went all Broken Bells on the music world. If the rest of Port of Morrow is just like this song, I think Shins fans, and music fans everywhere, will finally be getting what they have been waiting for since Wincing the Night Away.
