Garbage (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) have unveiled their new single “Empty” from their forthcoming album Strange Little Birds, due out on June 10th on the band’s own label STUNVOLUME. You can check out the song below.

“Empty is just exactly what it says it is. A song about emptiness,” said the band’s 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. The album is available for pre-order beginning today with several different bundle and format options available HERE. All fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive an instant download of the new single “Empty”.
