The Shins are finishing their new album

You can hear a couple of snippets too.
Now that nearly four years has passed since the release of their last album, 2012’s ‘Port of Morrow’, The Shins have awoken from their indie-cave and are in the midst of putting the finishing touches to its follow up.

While there’s no concrete details yet, the band has posted a series of Instagram teases to it’s official account, including the latest couple posted by frontman James Mercer on Thursday which features a small section of a new track.

Final mixing of a new Shins record is underway. I’ll post more soon! J

From what we can hear so far this new material isn’t too far from the standard Shins formula which means it should please their thirsty fans, whenever it lands.
