Though their new album isn't likely to hit stores until 2009, Grizzly Bear debuted a new song "Two Weeks" on the Late Show with David Letterman on Weds. night. The band has currently been in the studio working on their next album and is also prepping to head out on the road for select dates with Radiohead as well as some festival appearances. Of the newer material singer Edward Droste says "I think the orchestrations will be equally complex and intricate, but the mood is slightly more a sunny afternoon versus a fall afternoon."
The debut of the new material on the late night talk show circuit wasn't the first for Grizzly Bear, as earlier in the spring the band debuted another new track off the forthcoming disc "While You Wait for the Others," on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
