Garbage release new single ‘Empty’, announce album details

garbageEmpty is the first single to be taken from Garbage’s forthcoming sixth Strange Little Things, due out on June 10th on the band’s own label STUNVOLUME. The single is also their first release in four years.

Empty is just exactly what it says it is. A song about emptiness,

said the band’s lead singer Shirley Manson.

Strange Little Birds, Garbage’s sixth studio album, was recorded and produced by the band in Los Angeles and is the follow up to 2012’s heralded Not Your Kind of People.

To celebrate the release of Strange Little Birds, the band invites fans to join them for a special listening party at the historic East West Studios in Los Angeles on May 17th. Those in attendance will have the chance to be among the first to hear the new album in full and will be treated to a three-song performance, a Q&A detailing the making of the album, and much more.
