Though it’ll be a few months from the much anticipated release of Challengers, the first track has leaked. Not sure who was the first person to get their hands on this one, but dang it, this is classic New Pornos. Even though it’s a tad slower, a tad less aggressive than some of their finer songs, “My Rights Versus Yours” has all of the harmonies and bouncing guitar jangle you’ve come to expect from Carl and the gang.
Not sure yet if Neko Case will be on this album, though she did design the album artwork, since Carl’s long-lost niece Kathryn Calder has joined the band full-time. Hopefully it won’t mean the end of her band Immaculate Machine.
Challengers is out 8/21 on Matador Records
