As you may of heard, Third Eye Blind’s new EP, entitled Red Star, is set to hit a digital music store near you November 18th, 2008. Much to my delight, all 3 of the songs on the EP are currently up on their myspace page. They even put of a teaser video for their new full length album, entitled Ursa Major. Watch it below.
I would have to say that the title track is my favorite. “Red Star” has that classic Third Eye Blind sound that you come to expect. It really blew me away the first time I heard it. It sucks you in from the beginning and doesn’t let go. Everything fits together perfectly and musically it’s the best of the three.
“Why Can’t You Be” is actually a live version and is the version that will be put on the EP. It is a song that a lot of people can relate to: a song about being frustrated in relationships.
“NonDairy Creamer” is really growing on me. My initial reaction to the song was more of excitement that the contest had started and that there was new Third Eye Blind material out there, than anything. It has that catchy element that “Semi-Charmed Life” had back over 10 years ago. I don’t know if it will have that kind of mass appeal, but its definitely catchy.
Enjoy the new Third Eye Blind while it’s still there.
