Take a listen to The Afghan Whigs first recorded song in five years, “See and Don’t See.” Though the band didn’t write this song, which was originally recorded in 1970 by Marie “Queenie” Lyons, it still is a landmark occasion for the resurgence of spirit in the band that many thought was finished for good. Download the song for free after the jump.
For those who don’t want to just hear the new track, there will be a chance to see them sing it live this upcoming Tuesday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Then, the following night, The Afghan Whigs will play their first show in thirteen years. The band has reunited for 28 worldwide shows, including the All Tomorrow’s Parties, San Miguel’s Primavera Sound, and Lollapalooza 2012. Take a listen to their new song, “See and Don’t See,” and catch one of their reunion dates.
