Frontier-bashing vets Calexico have cut the ribbon on new tune "Falling From The Sky", fearing Ben Bridwell of Band Of Horses.

Calexico's Joey Burns said of the track, which features on the band's upcoming LP Edge Of The Sun:

"It was written when landing in New Zealand, having read the children's book "The House in the Night" which has a similar phrasing as the chorus in this song... the song could be about not knowing where life is heading sometimes - there is nostalgia and an attempt to convey the importance of mystery and magic in our lives. Our instincts tell us to take giant leaps, whilst our minds remind us to be more cautious. When we find ourselves truly alone or facing our biggest challenges, it is then that we are most in tune with our true selves and the world around us, or in this case amongst the universe and stars above."

Edge Of The Sun is out 13 April via City Slang.

Listen to the track below, and then check out Calexico's upcoming UK dates after.
