Art Brut | Nag Nag Nag Nag

The first single of Art Brut's next album was released in the US yesterday. The album is due next year but no specific date has been set.

If "Good Weekend" and "We Formed a Band" didn't win you over, then "Nag Nag Nag Nag" isn't going to either. However, as an Art Brut fan, it's a good addition to their discography. It has all the things AB fans adore. Arena-rock guitars with a punk pace. Enough hooks to keep you hitting the "<< button" and Eddie Argos' classic lyrics and delivery.

It sounds vaguely familiar so I think they played it when we saw them up in Montreal last October. I remember Mark and I talking about how good the new songs sounded live.

The b-sides of the CD single contain one other new song and five live tracks.

By the way, they wanted to name the song "Nag Nag Nag" but that was already taken by Cabaret Voltaire so they had to tack on an additional Nag.
