Listen: The Kooks

The Kooks' new album Junk of the Heart is just around the corner. Earlier this week, the band engaged in a web 2.0 publicity scheme for its release that'll get you a free download. The premise of the game was to have as many people as possible tweet "#JUNKOFTHEHEART" until the meter on the Junk of the Heart home page peaked, which it has, unlocking a free download. The downloadable song is called "The Saboteur" and even though it doesn't appear to be on the track list for Junk of the Heart, it could act as a sound forecast for the forthcoming album. If this is the case, then expect a slightly more mature sound with versatile chord progressions. It's definitely not experimental, but "The Saboteur" doesn't seem to be gunning for catchy. If anything, it's meandering toward something different, and definitely something new from the band. Listen for yourself.
