Download the First New Afghan Whigs Song Since 2006


While we haven’t suffered from a lack of Greg Dulli’s voice over the past few years — he’s put out tons of material with The Twilight Singers and The Gutter Twins, along with solo work and other collaborations — it’s been quite a while since we’ve heard any new Afghan Whigs material. Well, friends, the wait is over. The recently reunited band has released its first song since 2006, when new tracks “I’m a Soldier” and “Magazine” appeared on their album Unbreakable: A Retrospective 1990–2006. A minimalist cover of mysterious Southern soul singer Marie “Queenie” Lyons’ 1970 song “See and Don’t See,” it’s The Afghan Whigs in all their slow, dark, plush glory, Dulli’s grasping vocals contrasting with simple, almost soothing strumming. If you’re willing to give the band your email address, you can download it for free here, and commence fantasizing about a new album. [via Rolling Stone]
