With only a few weeks left before their sixth album, Heaven, hits stores on May 29, The Walkmen have released a new track from the album, titled “We Can’t Be Beat.”
Phil Ek, who has also worked with Built to Spill, The Shins, Shout Out Louds and Fleet Foxes, produced Heaven. Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes will also appear on a pair of songs on Heaven.
