It's called "The Shade," but there really isn't anything shady about this one - it's an ebullient, synthy rocker straight from Metric's creative sweet spot, paired with some appropriately uplifting lyrics. It was recorded at the Beastie Boys' Oscilloscope Studios in New York City and at Metric's own Giant Studios in Toronto. Metric's last album, 2012's Synthetica, won the 2013 Juno Award for alternative album of the year and earned producer James Shaw the prize for producer of the year.

This song is by Metric and appears on the album Pagans in Vegas (2015). I'm following the sunThat's setting in the westWe're floating on a bed of fading lights. A canopy of treesBears witness to the breezeI'm falling like a feather, soft and light. Baby, there's no better timeNo better time, baby, we can't findOh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa.

The album title was something that Emily Haines came up with at the last minute. We've never named an album this late. The album had been done for a while, and I think in terms of deadlines, we were down to about 20 minutes," guitarist Jimmy Shaw told Consequence of Sound. Emily was in an airport, and she said, 'I've got it, I got the title,' and she texted me 'Pagans in Vegas'

Listen to and download Metric - The Shade. I used to listen to a ton of Metric back in high school, and it wasn't until yesterday that I decided to whip out some of their music (for the first time in at least a year). Somehow the music Gods must have been payign attention, because not just an hour ago the Canadian band released this brand new single titled "The Shade. I can't say I'm completely blown away by the result. The good news? There's more up their sleeves - a studio album is in the works, and we can only anticipate they'll make an announcement sometime in the near future. Google Jason Grishkoff.
