Not only has Garbage released their first single, Blood For Poppies, but you can download it for free for the next week! The track comes off their upcoming album, Not Your Kind Of People, which comes out May 15th. The track will be issued on a limited edition, white vinyl 7-inch on Record Store Day, April 21st. The vinyl will also include a remix from drummer Butch Vig.
Shirley Manson states, “Blood For Poppies is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream. 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.”
I’ve listened to the song a few times now and I’m loving it! Check below for the free download widget and let me know what you think!
