    Young the Giant have released their two-track single, “Mirrorball/Mind Over Matter (Reprise).”

    Fueled By Ramen recording group Young The Giant have released their two-track single, “Mirrorball/Mind Over Matter (Reprise).” Previously only available on vinyl as a Record Store Day piece, the songs are now available today at all DSPs and streaming services.
    The band took to Instagram yesterday to announce the arrival of the two-track single: “’Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ was recorded in Nashville with The Raconteur’s Brendan Benson while we were on tour. We strived to recreate the power of the original recording while harnessing a more pastoral sonic. We wanted to reshape and re-tool with the same skeletal framework; strip it and re-dress it with new varnish. Benson even brought in the renowned McCrary Sisters to sing back up. We hope you enjoy – ‘Mirrorball & Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ out Friday.”

    Earlier this year, Young The Giant announced the addition of new summer dates of its hugely successful Home of the Strange Tour. The North American headline dates begin Wednesday, August 2nd at Louisville, KY’s Palace Theater and then continue through late September (see attached itinerary). The tour will include stops at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, NYC’s Central Park Summerstage, Washington DC’s Merriweather Post Pavilion, and Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island. Support on all dates will come from Cold War Kids and Joywave. For complete details, please visit www.youngthegiant.com/tour.

    I think people did and it doesnt change the fact that putting your RSD 7" songs from two years ago on digital outlets doesn't sound like news. But maybe that's just me.

    Not that people shouldn't read further before commenting but the wording on the home page may have been what confused people. It just says "Young the Giant have released their two-track single, “Mirrorball/Mind Over Matter (Reprise)” which maybe implied to some that it was being released for the first time.

    I like this very much. Mind over matter is easily one of my favorite YTG songs and Mirrorball was excellent. Really makes me want to get the RSD release
