To say I was excited to find that Garbage FINALLY released their first single for the hotly anticipated Not Your Kind of People is an understatement. I was (read: am) e-l-a-t-e-d-!
“Blood for Poppies” has all the elements we’ve come to know and love from Garbage. It’s a moody, brooding song with big production value and Shirley Manson’s luscious vocals. It’s both nostalgic and new.
Of the song, Shirley says:
“The song is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream,” said Shirley Manson. “The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary ‘Restrepo.’ It’s not literal in any sense whatsoever but it’s a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity.”
Then I found out you can download “Blood for Poppies” here for free. That’s right, FREE!
Go and get it! What are you waiting for?
