“Days Like These” is the first song and video from the gorgeous, arresting new album from LOW, HEY WHAT, out September 10th, 2021 worldwide on Sub Pop

HEY WHAT, the astonishing new Low album, will be released worldwide on September 10th, 2021 on Sub Pop Records. In anticipation of the new album, the beloved group is sharing “Days Like These,” the first single, and its official video, helmed by their longtime friend and director, Karlos Rene Ayala. You can watch “Days Like These” by clicking here.

HEY WHAT is Low’s thirteenth full-length release in twenty-seven years, and their third with producer BJ Burton. The new album finds the group focusing on their craft, staying out of the fray, and holding fast their faith to find new ways to express the discord and delight of being alive, to turn the duality of existence into hymns we can share. These ten pieces—each built around their own instantaneous, undeniable hook—are turbocharged by the vivid textures that surround them. The ineffable, familiar harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker break through the chaos like a life raft. Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse - building, breaking, colossal then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered. There will be time to unravel and attribute meaning to the music and art of these times, but the creative moment looks FORWARD, with teeth.
HEY WHAT is now available for preorder on CD/LP/CS/DSPs from Sub Pop. LP preorders from megamart.subpop.comselect independent retailers in North America and in the U.K, and in Europe will receive the limited Loser Edition on clear vinyl (while supplies last). HEY WHAT’s minimal album cover, evoking interference patterns, was designed by UK multidisciplinary artist Peter Liversidge.

HEY WHAT is the band’s first release since Double Negative, one of the best-reviewed albums of 2018, with year-end honors from Uncut (#1), The Guardian, MOJO, NPR, Vulture, The Wire, and more. The album also earned “Best of the Decade: 2010s” placement from Aquarium DrunkardBrooklyn VeganPitchfork, and Stereogum.
Low has announced a 30 date world tour with North American shows beginning in March 2022, with UK & European dates to follow in May. See below for a full list of shows.

Watch The Shins’ Oh, Inverted World (20th Anniversary Remaster) Official Videos With Newly Remastered Audio and HD Visuals “The Past and Pending” & “New Slang” (2004 Alternate Video) Available On YouTube For The First Time Ever

Earlier this month Sub Pop released the 20th Anniversary remastered version of The Shins’ much-beloved debut album Oh, Inverted World. Today, the videos for “The Past and Pending,” the album’s lamenting closing cut, and the 2004 Alternate Video for “New Slang,” are available for the first time ever as official uploads on YouTube. They both contain newly remastered audio and HD visual upgrades.  Updated versions of “Know Your Onion!” and the original, 2001 version of “New Slang,” are also available.
Originally released on June 19th, 2001, Oh, Inverted World is the earth-shattering, indie-rock-redefining album from The Shins, and is presented here in its finest form. The classic tunes get new life with mastering by Bob Ludwig, under band leader James Mercer’s watchful eye. The new front cover of this edition of Oh, Inverted World features an ‘inverted’ color scheme, on a die-cut jacket, and includes a booklet filled with vintage photos, handwritten lyrics, liner notes, and more.
The music on Oh, Inverted World is obviously essential, and this remastering truly makes this the album Mercer always wanted it to be. Never quite satisfied with the sonics of the original, Mercer took the 20th anniversary of the album as his opportunity to finally set the (literal!) record straight. And the results sound stellar: great for new fans, and well worth the attention for those who fell in love with it in the first place.
Oh, Inverted World saw new praise from the likes of MOJO (“The newly finessed sound is consistent with Mercer’s erudite craftsmanship.” ★★★★), UNCUT (8/10), The Sun (★★★★ ½) and Shindig (★★★★★), alongside reappraisals in interviews and reviews from the likes of BillboardEntertainment WeeklyApple MusicStereogumBrooklyn VeganFLOOD and Treble.

The Oh, Inverted World (20th Anniversary Remaster) is now available from megamart.subpop.comThe Shins merch store, select independent retailers in North Americathe U.K., EU, Australia and New Zealand. The vinyl LP will be available in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on July 23rd, 2021.
