Back in December, we were all ears for Widowspeak's driving track, "The Dark Age." Today, the rock duo reveals their final single—"Thick as Thieves"—off forthcoming LP, Almanac, available January 22 through Captured Tracks.
Take the next three minutes to listen to this bone-chilling reminiscence of a love that has sadly dissipated, carried by Molly Hamilton's boomeranging, airy echoes, which will hit you harder and harder as the tune progresses.
Don't worry, Widowspeak; if it's any consolation, Bernard Sumner was robbed of a relationship too, prompting the beloved New Wave number, "Thieves Like Us." Let's hope that 2013 is a little more kind to all of us.
