One Of Us

Wire has provided a first glimpse into their new album with a download of a new song called "One Of Us." The band says: "in days of yore we might have considered this track the first 'single' from the album." So here you have it, the first 'single' from Object 47:

Wire - One Of Us

The song sounds to my ears like their more melodic, poppy work from the mid-80s. It's certainly miles removed from the thrash of Send, Read & Burn 1 and Read & Burn 2. No complaints from me! I can't wait to see what the rest of the album is like.

Object 47 is due out on July 7 in the UK. Festival dates in the US, Canada, and Europe are scheduled in the coming months with a US tour to follow in the fall. They're playing "Boiling Boy." Which is quite exciting. Why, here's a video of them playing it in Italy earlier this month. Awesome:
