Listen: 'Banga' by Patti Smith

"It's just sort of an absurd kind of song."

Patti Smith's new album Banga — her first record in eight years — is out tomorrow. We've already heard 'April Fool' and 'Fuji-San' via NPR, and now 'Banga' has also made its premier. In the video below, the singer-come-style-icon explains that the song is "not about anything really, it's just sort of an absurd kind of song. It's our anthem. It means nothing except that we're all together."

Check it out below (care of Rolling Stone):

Banga tracklist:
1. 'Amerigo'
2. 'Fuji-san'
3. 'April Fool'
4. 'This is the Girl'
5. 'Banga'
6. 'Maria'
7. 'Tarkovsky (The Second Stop is Jupiter)'
8. 'Mosaic'
