Time for a (not so) dirty little secret…

Garbage‘s upcoming self-released new record Not Your Kind of People is out next week, and it’s fucking incredible. But don’t just take my word for it: You can hear the album streaming in full right now over at Spin.

Not only that, but iTunes US is giving away the album’s killer lead track, “Automatic Systematic Habit,” as a free download this week.

Maniacal, explosive (and rather danceable), “Automatic Systematic Habit” is the ultimate declaration of the band’s return to form–and possibly their finest form yet.

The grinding synthesizers whirring madly, the explosive drums, the killer guitar licks slicing into the speakers and of course, Shirley Manson‘s signature venom, all add together for one ferocious intro. “Oh, men like you keep me up at night/You want your women at your home and your bed on the side!” Shirley angrily declares. Dead and buried.

It’s a must: For me, for you, for your friends, your teacher and your secret lover. Grab it immediately.


Not Your Kind of People will be released on May 15. (iTunes)
