The Shins are releasing new album The Worm’s Heart next month

15 December 2017, 11:32 | Written by Laurence Day

The Shins have detailed The Worm's Heart, a new record featuring "flipped" versions of songs from recent LP Heartworms.

James Mercer & Co. have already shared news versions of "Name For You" and "Cherry Hearts", both of which sound very different from their iterations on Heartworms.

A press release describes the upcoming collection of "alternative, opposing" songs as "a playful exploration of a musical parallel universe" - basically all the tempos, moods, styles, and ideas have been inverted.

  2. So Now What (Flipped)
  3. Heartworms (Flipped)
  4. Dead Alive (Flipped)
