“Ashes To Ashes” (David Bowie Cover) (Live)

    A new-look Shins took to the stage for the first time earlier this week, showing to the world that James Mercer isn’t going to let all the negative press keep him from getting back on the road. The group apparently mostly played old stuff, but they did trot out a pretty cool cover: They take on David Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes” in a pretty convincing manner, nailing the funky bass and the melodramatic verses. Watch the video above. The Shins are due to return with a new album next year.
