Nicole Atkins releases free download of “Vultures” from new LP

Nicole Atkins & The Black Sea

The wait for Mondo Amore, the second full length LP for Nicole Atkins & The Black Sea due Jan. 25, just got a little easier. Today, the band released a free download (update: now apparently with a redeem code now no redeem code necessary) of “Vultures,” one of my personal favorites since its live debut in mid-2008. The track is the first officially released with the Black Sea and shares a 7″ with “Vitamin C,” a cover of German experimental group Can. Having been re-worked live a few times, “Vultures” ultimately doesn’t stray far from the orchestral pop noir of Atkins’s 2007 major label debut, Neptune City. Simple but grooving bass and a chorus of “Nah nah nah nah”s and “Ohh”s drive this memorable singalong (I dare you not to!), which climaxes in Atkins belting, “Take all they can get until your dirt and bones!”

You can download the track at the band’s recently revamped website.
