This morning, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released "This Life," a new single from their upcoming, self-titled record.

This next teaser of the new album, and last song, is magnificent. The band's frontman, Alex Ebert, holds nothing back vocally while screaming his soul out through the microphone. Church organs, trumpets guitars, and a backing gospel choir help paint the perfect musical portrait for the songs heart-wrenching mood and climactic hook, "I'm gonna jump in the fire."

Ebert gave the following statement to Rolling Stone:

I hesitate to give away too much, for it's got an O. Henry ending, as my mom calls it. But I can thankfully say that we may now have recorded a song that I can count among my favorite recordings of all time.

The new record will be released on July 23rd. The band is currently on tour with dates available below, as well as tickets available on Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' official website.
