Garbage have released a new track, "Blood for Poppies," in anticipation of their forthcoming record, Not Your Kind of People. The song is available for free download through the band's official website.
"'Blood for Poppies' is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream," front woman Shirley Manson explained when asked about the track.
"The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary Restrepo. It's not literal in any sense whatsoever but it's a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity."
It is the first release from the band after a five year hiatus with a new album that will be released through their own newly minted label Stun Volume. The album follow's 2005's Bleed Like Me.
