I’ve been waiting for something to look forward to in 2009, and I finally have it.

It has been six years since the Wrens last released an album, and when that album is as stunning as The Meadowlands, I’ve understandably been anticipating new material for quite some time. As announced from their newly renovated website, the Wrens will mark their 20th anniversary with a new single and the recording of their fourth album next week, in hopes of a late spring release. Of course, that’s hardly a solid release date, but if these dudes from New Jersey subscribe to anything, it’s the quality over quantity mentality. Their new single “Pulled Fences” is up for sale on the new site.
