One of our favourite bands of all time, Deftones, have released the first taster of their forthcoming seventh studio album, Koi No Yokan, and they’re giving it away for free. If you head on over to their official website, you can download ‘Leathers’ with absolutely no strings attached – they’re not even forcing you to join their mailing list, or Like them on Facebook, or any of the usual tricks bands play when they dangle freebies in front of their fans.
On first listen, in many ways ‘Leathers’ reminds us quite a lot of ‘Rocket Skates’, which co-incidentally was the first track the band put out there from their last record, Diamond Eyes. We’re sure our thoughts on the track will have changed completely by this time tomorrow though – like most Deftones tracks, we’re noticing new and interesting depths to the song with each new listen, and we’ve only heard it a half-dozen or so times so far. Whatever – go download a copy of it for yourself and make up your own minds.
Koi No Yokan will be released via Reprise/Warner Brothers Records on November 13. We can’t bloody wait.
