Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros will release their new album, Here, in late May. And even though we haven’t heard any studio recordings from the effort yet, they’re at SXSW so the inevitable has happened. Yes, fan-shot footage of the group performing new material has hit YouTube. While this kind of video tends to be frustrating due to either poor video or audio, these clips are actually pretty damn good.
They, of course, won’t compare to hearing the final version, but you can definitely hear where they’re going here (no pun). Watch them perform the all-new “Milton,” “I Don’t Want to Pray,” an untitled song, and “If You Wanna” below. [CoS]
