Listen: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Hot Coals

Alex Ebert and his merry band of many are back.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zero have shared their first single in an age, marking the next stage in the evolution of the 10-piece psych-folkers and announcing a forthcoming studio album, due early 2016 via Create/Control & Community Music. With obviously such a large band there will always be lineup changes, but their biggest came last year when singer Jade Castrinos left the band. According to frontman Alex Ebert, it was a significant moment in the group's ethos moving forward: "We had long been a social experiment first, musicians second. Over time, though, we were emerging, by virtue of hours spent, into a group of musicians who could really play together. When Jade left, that confirmed our new fate – music first.

The result is Hot Coals, a sprawling, almost 8-minute epic straight from the wild west, that coasts along like a lazy Sunday afternoon with plenty of vibe shifts and Ebert's patented brand of vocal quirk throughout so it never outstays its welcome.
