a new WIRE album & MP3, free show on Friday @ the Seaport
DOWNLOAD: Wire - One of Us (MP3)
Object 47 [the 47th object in Wire's discography] is nonetheless only Wire's 11th studio album. It is the 2nd product of an arc of work began in 2006 which has so far thrown up the rather well received EP, Read And Burn 03 [from which no tracks appear] and stands as a confident statement of where Wire are in 2008. As ever looking forward! While retaining Wire's idiosyncratic mix of an avant-garde mindset with classic pop timing this album boasts "tunes with zoom" a unique formula that somehow manages to sound wholly Wire [in a classic sense] and wholly contemporary.
Although Object 47 will not be released until July 7th, the first single, "One Of Us" is now available for download from pinkflag.com...
...and above. The first free show at South Street Seaport this summer is this Friday (May 30) (and Wire are playing it). All dates below....
