The Walkmen's 'We Can't Be Beat' (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

The Walkmen released "We Can't Be Beat," a new track off their upcoming album Heaven, Monday.

The first half of the song is slow to build with lead singer Hamilton Leithauser's semi-monotone "ooooos" reminiscent of Comedy Central Workaholics' song "Catherine Zeta Jones."

The second half of the nearly five-minute track is is the crowning jewel, though. The soft drumming builds ever so slightly in tune with Leithauser's lingering vocals..
