We are getting closer and closer to the release of The Shins' third full-length album, Wincing The Night Away. The album will hit stores in the US on January 23 via Sub Pop. The video for their first single off the new album, "Phantom Limb," has made its way to the internet on MTV and (at least for the time being) on YouTube. The film was directed by Patrick Daughters, who has also worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Feist, Secret Machines and Death Cab For Cutie.
You ready to see little kids portraying Joan Of Arc, participating in the Crusades and making animal sacrifices? Enjoy! I suggest watching the clip on MTV for now, as this particular YouTube stream has some serious audio issues. Just a tip.
