News from the New Pornographers : New Album, Free Download, Tour Dates!

It was on May 29, 2007 that we released the first music from Challengers. One of our favorite songs called "My Rights Versus Yours." (Rosie O'Donnell also announced she was leaving "The View" that day. Coincidence??)

Nearly three years later, we proudly present to you the first song from Together, entitled "Your Hands (Together)."
You can download it here:

The inspirations for the song is a magical trifecta of Black Sabbath's War Pigs with ABBA's Waterloo and Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Christine." Please feel free to tell all of your friends about it and make sure to play it LOUD!
