New Song from Mystery Jets -- Free!

To: Jets fans and mp3 hounds worldwide.
From: Mystery Jets!

Merry Christmas, indeed. Mystery Jets have decided to release "Flakes," for a limited time during the holiday season. It's the first public release from their still-untitled album, expected to be released in the spring of 2008. The first proper single from the album is "Young Love," and will be released in March.

"Flakes" is likely one the earliest completed tracks from the new album. A quick search through YouTube yields live renditions of the song as far back as July. And, as some of you may remember, it was one of two new songs Mystery Jets played for the crowd at Joe's Pub.

In that review I described "Flakes" as nouveau 60s doo wop, which, considering the fact that it's fooking difficult to review a song heard only once and live, I think is a fairly apt description. Enjoy.

Though not exactly a Christmas song, this video clip sort of, vaguely, ties the track to the winter season. Almost. In any case, it's good to see the band having fun and William recovering nicely from having the shit beat out of him:
