One of my favorite songwriters and the person I’ve seen live more than any other artist–yes, he’s that good–is David Bazan (myspace). I know it’s in the middle of work/ school for many of you but I can tell you this: if you can make it, I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed.

It’s Hard to Find a Friend reports that Bazan has a new single coming out next week. The A-side, “American Flags” is streaming at his myspace; it’s dark but also a big poppy. The B-side is “Please, Baby, Please”, a classic Bazan song that I’ve seen him play live a couple times. It’s one of the stronger of the new songs I’ve heard him play–good verses and very catchy chorus.

The single is out digitally next Tuesday, November 4th, also known as election day. Apparently a 7″ is set to follow.
