On my turntable: The Bangles - Sweetheart of the Sun (3 song EP)

"Anna Lee (Sweetheart of the Sun)" is the first track to be released from the forthcoming new Bangles album. This 3 song EP also features 2 acoustic tracks, "Hazy Shade of Winter" & "Let it Go", and includes a free download of all 3 tracks.

"Anna Lee (Sweetheart of the Sun)" is an exciting track. To my ears it sounds unlike anything The Bangles have done thus far, and yet the vocals are perfect, vintage Bangles.  The song was written by Debbi, Susanna, & Vicki, and is sung by all three. I have already decided that it is officially one of my favorite Bangles tunes of all time.

Sweetheart of the Sun is sold exclusively through the Maurices clothing store chain, so you need to physically go to a store to find it. I got my copy at the Mall of America for a nifty $5.
