The Walkmen‘s sixth full-length album of original material, Heaven, came out in May on Fat Possum. And following their performance at CMJ 2012, the Walkmen plan to release a limited-edition 7″ featuring two unheard songs from those Heaven sessions. That vinyl won’t be coming out until November 6, but we’ve got both of those tracks streaming for you today, exclusively through CMJ.
The songs, “Dance With Your Partner/Vermeer ’65,” were produced, engineered and mixed by Phil Ek, who sat at the boards in the Washington state studios where the Walkmen recorded the rest of their album. If you can’t wait for the November 6 vinyl release date, the Walkmen will also be giving these records out to the first 100 people who hit the Terminal 5 merch table at the band’s CMJ-sponsored show on October 18, while supplies last. Visit the Walkmen’s website for more details, and get your first listen of those songs below:
