Danger Mouse & James Mercer Revive Broken Bells, Release New Single

Broken Bells are back, baby! Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (The Shins) have officially reignited their much-loved musical partnership, gifting us with a brand new single and the promise of a full-length album on the way.

Dubbed ‘We’re Not In Orbit Yet…’, the duo’s comeback single is just as dark and lush as you’d hope. The retro-futuristic jam is laced with acoustic guitar and features quasi-hypnotic backing vocals intended to emulate “the siren song of a master brainwasher”.

The single marks our first taste of the band’s first album in eight years

It also comes packing a striking music video directed by Johnny Chew, which features Broken Bells’ trademark cosmic imagery and ominous sci-fi visuals.

The fresh single marks our first taste of the band’s first album in eight years, dubbed INTO THE BLUE, which will form the follow-up to 2014’s After the Disco.

More details about the LP are set to be revealed shortly.
