This is "Better Days," the first single from Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' new self-titled album, due out July 23rd. Frontman Alex Ebert describes the songs on the album as some of the “rawest, most liberated, most rambunctious stuff we’ve done.” Maybe more discerning fans will be able to point out the raw and liberated rambunctiousness out of this one. To our ears, "Better Days" sounds simultaneously like a religious procession and a backdoor porch lament.
