Broken Bells -- the side project of The Shins' James Mercer and Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse -- just released the title track to their upcoming record, After The Disco, a little more than a week ago, and they have now debuted another brand new tune via La Blogotheque's A Take Away Show.
Broken Bells "The Changing Lights" on La Blogotheque
Filmed in an open piano shop during business hours in Paris, the duo performed "The Changing Lights," a track slated to be on the new album. Forgoing the sleek production of their records, the two played completely acoustic, letting the song's emotion and melody lead the way. The melancholy vocals and rich piano sounds make for an excellent preview of the track, and one hopes that the sound carries through to the album version.
While they were hanging around the piano store, Broken Bells also performed "October," a track from their 2010 self-titled debut album. You can watch the video below.
