Stream: Blackbird Blackbird, "New Leaf"

You can easily imagine Blackbird Blackbird’s "New Leaf" as a sort of side-scrolling game, if the song's splashes of broken glass and uppercut snares and recurring power-up melodies don't make the comparison too obvious. So actually, instead, take the title to heart and imagine yourself trying something. It's a first time scuba diving song! Building a bird house! It's conversational French! Sure there are downer muffly bass parts, but stuff is tough sometimes—as the sun sets so it rises just the same. When you forget to put on a weight belt or make the little bird hole too small or confuse noun gender, the happy parts in "New Leaf" will be there to pick you up.
