TheShinsThe Shins are scheduled to release their long-awaited third album, Wincing The Night Away, on January 23rd. They revealed the track listing a couple weeks ago and announced that the first single “Phantom Limb” will be released November 14th on iTunes. However, you can hear streaming audio of the song now on their MySpace page and official site.

After a couple listens, it definitely has the bright, chirping and easy-listening pop quality you’d expect from The Shins. It doesn’t really grab you with much of a hook, though.

Their last album Chutes To Narrow (2003) wasn’t very immediate either…but after 5-plus listens its excellence was slowly revealed. So, I’ll give “Phantom Limb” a little more time to sink in. After all, they can’t all be as immediately catchy as “Caring Is Creepy,” “Know Your Onion,” “Girl On the Wing” and “New Slang” from their first album Oh, Inverted World (2001).
