It’s a haunting electronic soundscape that not only lacks the band’s trademark anthemic choruses and stadium-filling guitar lines, but boasts nary a hook and has few decipherable lyrics. Not to mention there’s a full-on trance bridge. No word yet on whether this cut is from their forthcoming album, but it’s certainly a bold offering. (And it’ll be interesting to see if they’re applauded for evolving their sound, or if they’ll be accused of ripping off acts like Bon Iver and Imogen Heap.)
