Reunited Boston alt-rock band Belly are releasing their first album in 23 years, DOVE, this summer. “Shiny One” is the lead single off the forthcoming record. Frontwoman Tanya Donelly (of Throwing Muses and the Breeders) made this statement about the song: “I have a lot of affection for ‘Shiny One.’ It was the first completely collaborative song we’ve ever done — Gail wrote the riff and the chorus, Tom and I wrote the verse and bridge, Chris’s parts shaped the direction and vibe. When I hear it, I hear all four of us equally.” The song comes with a static-hued video made by drummer Chris Gorman with help from Jack McKenna, which features the band wearing bird masks. DOVE is out May 4, their last LP was 1995’s sophomore release King. Belly is embarking on a worldwide tour this summer, with a stop in Seattle on Sunday, August 12 to play the Neptune Theatre.
