Stream the new song "Somebody" from Jukebox the Ghost.

PopMatters put Jukebox the Ghost on our “Best Hopes to Break Out in 2012” piece. Writer Billy Hepfinger wrote “here’s hoping their next album, rumored to be due out next year, is the one to put them on the map in a big way”. Well that album Safe Travels is no longer a rumor and it will be out next month. Jukebox have offered up two songs as a teaser from the new album via their website.
