The gods of punk rock are smiling down upon the world today. Legendary singer/songwriter Patti Smith has unveiled a brand new song today, and it does not disappoint. The title track from Smith’s forthcoming Banga is a wild, verbose and generally badass affair in classic Smith style.
Her first album since 2007’s Twelve, Banga, is due out tomorrow, June 5, via Columbia. Listen to the godmother of punk’s new track below, watch the video for “Fuji-San” here and listen to “April Fool” here. [Rolling Stone]
