Band of Horses Releases New Album Art, First Single

In this article…

Seattle rockers Band of Horses are coming out with a new album, and the group revealed some details about the upcoming release on their website yesterday.  They shared the cover art and the album title, "Mirage Rock."  They also shared the first single off the album with a video to go with it called "Knock Knock."  I see a rhyming trend, but it surely must be coincidence.

The song is an upbeat and catchy tune.  Long falsetto "Woos" are sprinkled in at the beginning and throughout the song, and Ben Bridwell brings the same raw and unbridled enthusiasm to his lyrics.  The video is pretty cool.  It shows a time-lapsed excursion in what looks like Yellowstone or some big park out west.  The viewer is taken through trails, into a lake, through desert scenes and rocky hillsides.  We also get scenes of a rock being drawn on every now and then with sidewalk chalk.  Could that be the titular "Mirage Rock" from the album?

Either way, it's a nice first single that tells me the Band of Horses are ready to bring it on this album.  "Mirage Rock" is due out on September 18, and the band is going on tour later this summer to support the album.  Check out the video and the album art below:
