    Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks have returned today with their first new material since the 2014 album, Wig Out at Jagbags. The indie rockers have also announced a North American tour, which will see them tease even more previously unheard music.

    (Read: Dissected: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks)

    The new single is titled “Middle America” and is an “ode to underdogs everywhere, with bittersweet words of encouragement,” per a press statement. Twangy and low-key, it gently rolls on like much of the open pastures of America’s middle states.

    Take a listen below.
