Swans share new song (listen here), playing Lincoln Hall on summer tour

swans-to-be-kind-1

Swans are slated to release the follow-up to their 2012 masterpiece The Seer, titled To Be Kind, on May 13 via ringleader Michael Gira’s Young God Records. Special guests include Annie Clark (pka St. Vincent), Cold Specks, and Little Annie, and they’ve just recently shared its funky and off-kilter lead single “A Little God In My Hands.” You can take a listen to the track at the bottom of this post. The LP’s cover art will be presented in six different panels — one is above and the remaining five can also be found below.

Michael Gira and co. will also be doing quite a bit of touring this summer. Their North American leg includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on June 22. Ticketing information for the Chicago show is forthcoming, but check LH’s concert calendar for updates.

All Swans dates, a stream of “A Little God In My Hands,” and those album covers lie after the jump…
