Hear the latest Dan Deacon single 'True Thrush'

If Dan Deacon's recent input hasn't moved you — previous single "Lots" felt familiar while his novelty remix of "Call Me Maybe" was just that — then his latest single, "True Thrush," might change your mind.

The nearly five-minute jam patiently bubbles under the surface, with Deacon's subdued-but-still-warped vocals pushing the track forward. 

"Spread those wings wide and take me along / Now show me the sky and tell me I'm on," he sings (I think — transcribing Deacon lyrics is futile, frustrating, sometimes unnecessary).

"America," Deacon's follow-up to "Bromst," drops Aug. 28 on Domino.

Listen to "True Thrush" below.

    The Los Angeles Philharmonic turned to New York of the 1940s and '50s Tuesday night at the Hollywood Bowl, for which Bramwell Tovey drolly apologized to his Angeleno audience. I certainly noticed no objection to Audra McDonald, in magnificent form, holding the Bowl in her sway with Broadway standards.

    As "A Walk in the Woods" opens, Robert Redford, playing author Bill Bryson, suffers through a morning talk-show appearance.

    The mercurial soul singer D'Angelo has long eluded the TV spotlight. He's never confessed to Oprah, danced on Ellen's couch or jousted with Jon Stewart about race and politics.

    'Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz': A wrecking ball in need of a target

    Here, in a nutshell, is the implicit marketing push behind “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz”: With 23 songs full of F-bombs, strange sounds and enthusiastic references to weed, this album is totally crazy — and what makes it even crazier is that it’s by Miley Cyrus, the former Disney Channel star.
