Glasvegas Back With Brilliant "The World Is Yours"

The new comeback single from the aforementioned Glasvegas is here. What is a surprise though is how much of a new direction the single - The World Is Yours - truly is. Surging, Stephen Morris-type drumming defines the track, a massive change due to the departure of drummer Caroline McKay. If this is any indication, this will be a very different album from their spectacular predecessor, their magnificent eponymous debut. Once the initial surprise wears off, the track really shines after repeated listenings. Actually, it's totally brilliant, the best new song of this year.

The album hits American shores April 4th. And needless to say, I can't wait. Consider my appetite sufficiently whetted.
