Band of Horses have been dropping a steady trail of bread crumbs toward the May 18 release of their third album, Infinite Arms, with videos for the songs “Compliments” and “NW Apt”. Now we’ve got a four-and-a-half-minute teaser about the making of the album, featuring an expanded band line-up and what appears to be a significant lightening-up of frontman Ben Bridwell, who has a reputation for being “difficult”. The new songs sound great and Bridwell seems genuinely excited about the prospect of this album being a much more collaborative effort than past Band of Horses releases.
