The Rapture

I like The Rapture. I feel like they get a bad rap (ha!) sometimes though. Whatever, this post is not here to try and introduce some brand new band, just here to tell you some news about them and to give your ears a listen to a new song by The Rapture. Their new album Pieces of the People We Love is coming out on September 12th and they've worked with some fine producers like Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Futureheads), Ewan Pearson (Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Gwen Stefani), and Danger Mouse.

The Rapture’s Mattie Safer says: "We're pleased as punch to be working with people as brilliant as Paul & Ewan and Danger Mouse. We started with a goal of making an album that’s an even happier Saturday night than the last one, and this record is going to be so good that even the engineers get laid off the back of it.”

Listen:
“Get Myself Into It”

(this post was made possible thanks to a nice PR email I got today about this new track...heads up, you might see posts just like it elsewhere)
