The Skinny: For the past week, Metric has been sharing clues with fans about “Youth Without Youth,” the band’s first single from the forthcoming album, Synthetica (MMI/Mom+Pop). We’ve seen mysterious video footage from the recording studio, heard Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw speak on the making of the song, and even saw fan interpretations of “Youth Without Youth” after the song’s lyrics and sheet music were unveiled and before the song’s release (relive the experience at THIS LINK).
Today, “Youth Without Youth” is officially released and available for purchase online. A pre-order of Synthetica is also available online. Every pre-order comes with an immediate download of “Youth Without Youth” and 5 Synthetica Reflections tracks.
