Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit are streaming a new song from the band's upcoming Late March, Death March EP. "Radio Silence" details the orbiting thoughts that go through one's mind when in relationship limbo, and the maddening white noise of awaiting a breakthrough. 

Behind the Scenes: Frightened Rabbit

"'Radio Silence' was written earlier this summer, and is essentially about that torturous time you spend waiting for someone in particular to call you," says Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison. "Of course, they never do. More often than not, this is for the best, even though it doesn't feel that way at the time."

Frightened Rabbit will head out on a fall headlining tour after playing a series of supporting dates with the National. The Late March, Death March EP is due September 10th.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
