Lots of promising stuff on the hipsterfied Spiderman 3 soundtrack, but naturally the good stuff will have to wait until the Grey’s-approved singles are outta the way. So if you need to breakaway from the Fray for a minute, here’s the new Snow Patrol single for you to shit on.

Drab as it is, they’re doing the piano sap rock so effectively (admit it, moms and first dates will eat it up) that just maybe a band like Coldplay will make good on their Eno-snatching promise to shift course entirely. Everybody wins. And Chris will have another thing to brag to his childhood bullies about.

The Snow Patrol track has a fan-made video already, of course, which incorporates copious amounts of advance footage. Hey Topher’s in it too! Fez is so gonna be in the next one.
