American folk band, Hiss Golden Messenger, have shared a new song “Shinbone,” which is the second single to be released from their upcoming album Jump for Joy. This LP is due out August 25 via Merge. The band also has an extensive fall tour ahead of them. Check out “Shinbone” below, followed by the upcoming tour dates.

Hiss Golden Messenger are bandleader M.C Taylor, guitarist Chris Boerner, bassist Alex Bingham, drummer Nick Falk, and keyboardist Sam Fribush. Jump for Joy was produced by M.C Taylor.

Of “Shinbone,” Taylor says in a press release: “I wrote this tune after abruptly coming out of a prolonged depression. As anyone that struggles with depression knows, sometimes you just snap out of it for no reason that you can discern. This song contains what I think may be one of the mission statements of Jump for Joy, namely: If you take the big gamble and lose it all, can you survive with whatever’s left? That’s the question a lot of us are asking ourselves.”

The song immediately jumps into a pattern of funky guitar chords with a quaint drums keeping pace which offers a sense of optimism that’s reflected in the song’s lyrics. Taylor sings of finally finding a sense of joy and peace he had been lacking before which is evident in lyrics “Woke up this morning/My God I felt happy/What a strange sensation.”

“Shinbone” is preceded by the band’s recent single, “Nu-Grape,” which is also featured on Jump for Joy.
