The Shins continue to drip out content from their forthcoming album The Worm’s Heart, which contains “flipped” versions of songs from 2017s Heartworms. Today they have shared the remixed title track from the 2017 LP, “Heartworms (Flipped)” with a new enchanted disco-pop feel. The track list is a reverse order from the original album, and all the new songs contain the same lyrics with new tempos and instruments.
From The Shins:
“When James Mercer wrote, produced, and recorded Heartworms, he had this desire for an alternate version, an opposite version. The original track order is reversed and songs are reborn, yet the lyrics and melody remain intact.”
The Worm’s Heart is due out on Friday, January 19 and is available now for pre-order. View our article on the original album, Heartworms here, and be sure to check back for the full review of The Worm’s Heart next week.
