Broken Bells Go Dance on New Track "Holding on for Life"

Broken Bells are back! Three years after their debut album, the indie rock duo—made up of producer Danger Mouse and Shins frontman James Mercer—have released a new track from a forthcoming sophomore album. The song is "Holding on for Life," the album is After the Disco, and that title isn't meant ironically.

"Holding on for Life" finds Mr. Mercer and Mr. Mouse entering dance music territory with this moody synth-pop tune. The chorus, however, isn't a mere flirtation—it's pure disco in the style of the Bee Gees.

Listen to Broken Bells' dance dalliance above and get ready for After the Disco to drop on January 14.
