Broken Bells – We’re Not In Orbit Yet: New Song Of The Day

Broken Bells ring in with We’re Not In Orbit Yet and Brian (Danger Mouse) and James (The Shins) have a new album up their sleeves.

Here’s the blurb with a few details:

Broken BellsBroken Bells, the musical partnership of Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (The Shins) are back with the first song from their third full-length album, INTO THE BLUE, coming soon via AWAL.

In the unique and unmistakable signature style that Broken Bells have perfected since their Grammy-nominated 2009 debut, “We’re Not In Orbit Yet…” conjures interstellar soundscapes via sublime melodies undercut with the slightest tinge of the sinister. As is Broken Bells’ wont, the song is both gorgeous and ominous, featuring quasi-hypnotic backing vocals that emulate the siren song of a master brainwasher. The band’s lush soundscapes complement its dark lyrics perfectly as always. It’s not the Shins, it’s not Danger Mouse, it’s Broken Bells.

An accompanying music video featuring Broken Bells’ cosmic imagery and ominous sci-fi visuals was directed by Johnny Chew.
