    Alex Ebert, aka, Edward Sharpe, and his rotating collective of Magnetic Zeros have released a new single, "Hot Coals." In a brief email to fans, Ebert explains the track is a taste of a new album in the works: "This song is from our 4th studio album due out the beginning of next year. We hope you enjoy it! It is not yet available everywhere, but we encourage all of you to share it. It will be available on all platforms on November 20th."

    At first, the tune riffs on the sparse, folk acoustics of a song like "Home," before careening into something that sounds more like Cat Stevens and Nina Simone on a picnic date on a deserted beach. After just over a minute (and onward until over seven), it begins to explore loose, jazz-addled themes, with Ebert's powerful, soul-filled vocals anchoring it to a very earthy plane, along with some eyebrow-raising lyrics. (Anyone else hear traces of Seal's "Crazy"?)

    "We've been on for a while now, but it's like we just turned on a new page in the old book with the inscription: serve your power and work beyond reason," Ebert says in the email. "We have. Here's a large helping of it."
