The Afghan Whigs are getting ready to release their first album in 16 years, Do To The Beast, and now you can hear the record's second single, "The Lottery."
The song starts off funky with a muted guitar over pedaling high hats, sounding like the opening to Isaac Hayes' "Shaft." Then, the lead guitar plays reverbed arpeggios that bring the band back to their grungy roots. The chorus sees the band changing things up yet again with an echoed guitar that sounds like the opening of U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name" and vocals from frontman Greg Dulli that sounds like Peter Gabriel. Listen to the funky, grungy, '80s arena track above. You can also watch the video of the first single, "Algiers," here on Zumic.
