Next month, Broken Bells, the side-project duo of Danger Mouse and Shins frontman James Mercer, will release their sophomore album After The Disco. We’ve already posted the title track and “Holding On For Life,” and both of those are very slick and produced songs. So it’s nice to see the duo taking part in french website La Blogothèque’s naturalistic acoustic Take Away Show video series, performing the new track “The Changing Lights” in a piano store and showing, with this stripped-down version, just how strong their songwriting fundamentals are. They also play “October,” a song from their 2010 self-titled debut, and you can watch both performances below.
After The Disco is out 2/4 on Columbia.
