The Shins Announce New Album

According to Consequence Of SoundThe Shins have announced that they’re moving forward with their fifth studio album. James Mercer said that his label was trying to hold off on releasing the album in order to secure a better lineup position at Coachella, but fans were concerned that there would be no album, since The Shins weren’t on the Coachella lineup. Fortunately, Mercer has said that the new album, titled “Heartworms”, will be out March 10th. Mercer even released a single track titled “Name For You” (written for his daughter), to go along with the announcement.
