    The Low Anthem Marks Reagan Centennial with Stream of "Smart Flesh" Song "Hey, All You Hippies!"

    The Low Anthem's forthcoming album, Smart Flesh, is due out on Nonesuch in just two weeks, on February 22. The album, the majority of which was recorded in a cavernous, vacant pasta sauce factory, touches on such themes as love and longing and, in one song in particular, changing political winds. On that note, and to mark the centennial of Ronald Reagan's birth, the song—the evocatively titled "Hey, All You Hippies!"—is now streaming on the band's website. To hear how the two are linked, listen to the song at lowanthem.com.

    Smart Flesh is available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store on vinyl, CD, and in a special deluxe edition with a bonus disc of additional music. Pre-orders include a limited-edition poster signed by the band, along with an instant download of the album's opening track, "Ghost Woman Blues." All orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album starting release day. To reserve your copy now, head to the Nonesuch Store.

    The Low Anthem begins its US tour in support of the new album on February 24 at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC, (not far, coincidentally, from the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center). For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
