World known Swedish rock-band The Sounds that will be celebrating already 13th birthday this year is ready for a new album and the first taste is delivered with new single "Better Off Dead".
First The Sounds' album "Living in America" has become real sensation bringing loads of fame, awards in Sweden and international fan-base making big breakthrough in US touring afterwards with such a big bands like Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Angels & Airwaves, Panic! At The Disco, also No Doubt and Paramore lately. Second album produced by Jeff Saltzman (producer of The Killers' "Hot Fuss") established their name on a world rock-stage with loads celebrities calling themselves fans of The Sounds (Dave Grohl, Pharrell, Quentin Tarantino, Britney Spears, etc.). On March 29th we'll hear already fourth album "Something To Die For" and as innovative promo among fans The Sounds organized contest providing sheet music for the first single "Better Off Dead" and asking fans to create their own version of the song without listening to The Sounds' one with winner's version to appear as b-side of the single.
Right now we can already listen to The Sounds' version of "Better Off Dead" - stunning pop-rock track with electronic production and incredibly catchy chorus, the song seems to be sewed out of three parts - first radio pop-rock part, dance-insert in the middle and the final part bringing hard beat making the song in common quite original and delicious thing.
