Late last month, Brooklyn rock quartet The Walkmen unveiled the details for their latest full length record Heaven as well as a teaser trailer. Well last night, the quartet dropped the first single of the album, the title track. Though carefully constructed to the contrary, "Heaven" sounds like The Walkmen are playing right in front of you. No excess, sparse but not bare; just the right amount of everything. A pretty great lead single from a band that doesn't need one to sell records. It makes the wait until June 5th that much harder.
