Fresh off announcing their new LP Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, Dinosaur Jr. have given a glimpse at their upcoming album with first single “Tiny,” which the alternative rock group performed Tuesday on Later… With Jools Holland.
As Henry Rollins proclaimed of the new LP in the band’s Give a Glimpse announcement video, “like every other Dinosaur Jr. record, it is fantastic,” and “Tiny” certainly fits the mold of classic Dinosaur Jr., in part because it boasts the band’s original lineup. Despite the song’s diminutive title, J Mascis, one of Rolling Stone‘s 100 Greatest Guitarists, creates a thunderous, cavernous wall of guitar sound to which he applies his hushed vocals and subtle hooks.
Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not is available to pre-order now at Dinosaur Jr.’s site ahead of its August 5th release, with the band offering a variety of exclusive bundles ranging from a purple vinyl to “CD + Tee + Trucker Hat + Poster” package. For diehards, there’s a mammoth bundle that includes a limited edition set of Skullcandy headphones – emblazoned with the band’s Green Mind cover – as well as a pair of seven-inches featuring bonus tracks, an autographed poster, a hardcover book and more.
