After a little hiatus James Mercer and the rest of The Shins will be back with a new album in 2012. In 2010 & 2011, Mercer was a little busy with the Broken Bells project with Danger Mouse. Today, the band announced their new album Port of Morrow and dropped a new song from the album. You can stream their new song, "Simple Song" over at their website or below. Port of Morrow will be released on March 20. Let us know what you think.
