James Mercer is the only remaining original member of The Shins, coming off his Broken Bells side project with Danger Mouse. Is there apprehension in the air? Fear not, lead single “Simple Song” is classic Shins and even has a few new production tricks that James might have picked up from Danger Mouse.

“Well this is just a simple song
To say what you done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
And you feel like an ocean
Being warmed by the sun”
