Those fine French folks that call themselves Air have offered their newest single, "Do the Joy," from their forthcoming albumLove 2
(awesome title) on iTunes for free. All you have to do is go to the band's website atwww.aircheology.com
, wait for the little animation and sign up for your free iTunes download code. What are you waiting for? Go download and be merry. I will offer some thoughts on the tune after the jump.
The song kicks off with some heavy rock guitars, a fun departure for the band, that bleed into a Halloween-esque, squiggly synth line. In comes the piano -- that soft, gentle touch of keys that made the band's album Moon Safari such a bastion of 60's era soft piano ballads splayed over songs about stars, sexy boys and making it easy.
