The Shins – “Name For You”

Last week, The Shins announced the upcoming release of Heartworms, their first full length album since 2012’s fantastic Port of Morrow. They shared the first teaser, “Dead Alive,” back in October, and now they’ve returned with “Name For You” and, more recently, “The Fear.” Although its been five years, as soon as you hear the first few bits and pieces of James Mercer’s signature shrill, sharp voice and the jaunty, bubbly beat of “Name For You,” its as if they never left, and the uplifting nature of the track was what made it absolutely perfect for our first post of the new year.

Heartworms will be released on March 10th.
