Fat Possum Records is excited to announce that The Walkmen are releasing a limited edition 7-inch single, featuring the previously unreleased tracks “Dance With Your Partner” and “Vermeer ’65.” The release is limited to 1000 copies and will be available on Tuesday, November 6th. CMJ premiered the tracks, which are available for stream HERE. Additionally, during their headlining performance at CMJ Festival in New York City on October 18th, the band will give away copies of the 7-inch to the first 100 people to enter Terminal 5. Pre-order is now available at Insound and Fat Possum.
The band is currently in the midst of a headlining tour in support of their latest album Heaven. The dates, which followed a tour with Florence & The Machine, continue with two shows at 9:30 Club in Washington DC on October 4-5 and wrap up at Royale in Boston on October 19.
NPR said that Heaven finds the band “[continuing] to refine and mature its increasingly stately, deliberately paced sound,” while Pitchfork called the album “gloriously pretty.” Stereogum praised the record listing it as the #2 ‘Album Of The Year So Far’ and noting “Heaven is the elegant, understated, utterly gorgeous new album from the Walkmen, and it may well be their best.”
