You can stream the entire album until it's released, at npr music.

I've been listening to the new album for a week or so now; initially it seemed a bit err underwhelming, and despite enjoying it very much, I'm still left with that sentiment for some reason. Partly that's just personal taste , no doubt, but also there's no one track that does a"Teenage Feeling" - grabbing my heart & saying "Play me, over & over". Every track on the album is good - they're all damned fine, in fact (well, the closer "Marais La Nuit" is a 'bit' long eh), but asked to pick just one & rave about it, tell my mates "you must hear this", I'd flounder somewhat, and listening again this morning hasn't altered that.

Soo - very much recommended, but not raved about (huh?) - that isn't meant as faint praise, just that a certain personal, emotional connection is missing, for me at least.
