'Song of the Week': Frightened Rabbit- "Swim Until You Can't See Land"

Picking up right where they left off with 2008's stellar, The Midnight Organ Fight, Frightened Rabbit are back with a new single titled, "Swim Until You Can't See Land." The new track is slated to appear on the bands upcoming and as of yet untitled next album, which is due out sometime next Spring. The single also features the b-side, "Fun Stuff" which has appeared before as "Last Tango in Brooklyn", with some new arrangements this time around.

You can GO HERE to the fatcat website to stream the single and b-side now.

Here's what singer Scott Hutchinson had to say about the new track, ...“’Swim Until You Can’t See Land’ was the title I had in my mind before I even started writing the album; I was becoming more and more interested in the idea of a rejection of the habits and behaviour most people see as normal, and in turn embracing a certain madness. It’s about losing your mind in order to reset the mind and the body. Forget what’s gone before and wash it out. This is not necessarily a geographical journey, as the ‘swim’ can involve any activity in which you can lose yourself. It’s a good introduction to the record as the theme unravels therein.”
