The Shins' 'September': New B-Side Comes With A Word-Heavy Video

02/06/2012 04:08 pm ET

The Shins reentered our lives last month with a simple song after five years off the scene. Now we have another, even simpler song plus video to add to the growing Shins pile, leading up to the release of their upcoming full length, Port of Morrow, on March 20, the time of year all good things are happening (see "Mad Men," "Hunger Games," spring). "September" is the B-side to "Simple Song," and it comes with a wordy visual video, inspired by Jacob Escobedo's artwork for the album.
