The Shins' "Simple Song" video is now streaming on YouTube/VEVO at http://youtu.be/RoLTPcD1S4Q.
The clip puts a narrative spin on the first single from the band's forthcoming "Port Of Morrow," which can be pre-ordered now at http://www.theshins.com/shop and is out March 20. Fans can see The Shins play the song straight on "Saturday Night Live" on March 10, when The Shins will return to 30 Rock for their second SNL appearance.
There is a "very limited" amount of tickets left for the Shins' May 28 show at Red Butte Garden. Get tickets at: https://tickets.redbuttegarden.org/TheatreManager/1/online
