Everyone wants their music for free these days. So Richard Ashcroft and the boys are giving their fans what they want.
“Love is Noise,” the first single off of the Verve’s new album, “Forth,” is now available as a FREE 256 kbps MP3 on Amazon.com.
And if that’s not enough for you, you can listen to “Forth” in its entirety at Lala.com.
Incidentally, David Fricke gives “Forth” four stars in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
Two of the best psychedelic rock shows I’ve ever seen were by this British band, in London and New York, in the summer of 1993, and most of the Verve’s fourth record — their first after a decade apart — is a return to that whirlpool-guitar, shaman-song form.
I concur. Come on, now, go listen to it already!
