living easy with british sea power

Last month, British Sea Power released the surprisingly stout teaser EP, Zeus. Now the avant-garde history rockers have issued the first single off their upcoming 4th album, Valhalla Dancehall.

“Living Is So Easy” will be available for purchase November 29, but you can stream and/or download a free edited version below. It’s a nice, breezy midtempo BSP number with Yan’s distinctive vocals front and center:

The band’s press release probably describes it best: “The song ‘Living Is So Easy’ features electronic keyboards, plus some Louis Vuitton and clay pigeons. It’s a mixture of Serge Gainsbourg and Ralf and Florian-era Kraftwerk with a sprinkle of Stock, Aitken and Waterman. It’s our most electronic song to date. This is the high life.”

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
