As if the group's imminent reunion tour wasn't enough to get its fans psyched up, jam-band icons Phish have just released the leadoff single from a recently completed new studio album, which will hit stores this summer.
Titled "Times Turns Elastic," and clocking in at 13-and-a-half minutes, the new cut is available starting today (5/26) exclusively via Apple's iTunes Store, and video footage of the band recording the track is posted at Phish's website.
"I began writing this little tune for Phish - and it just kept growing and growing,
frontman Trey Anastasio
said in a press release. Last week, Anastasio
performed a version of the cut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
"Times Turns Elastic" paves the way for the July 28 release of an as-yet-untitled album that Phish began recording with producer Steve Lillywhite less than three months ago.
Next Sunday (5/31), Phish launches a reunion outing that marks the group's first tour in five years. The outing gets underway at Boston's historic Fenway Park, and is scheduled to hit about 20 cities through mid-August.
The group played its first reunion shows during a March 7-9 engagement in Hampton, VA.
