As previously reported, Ben Kweller returns with his fifth LP, Go Fly a Kite, on February 7th via his new imprint, The Noise Company. Our first taste is the album’s opener, “Mean to Me”, and it packs the grit of his teenage grunge band Radish alongside Kweller’s trademark pop-rock harmonies. Stay tuned toward the end for a guest appearance from the horn section. Stream it below (via SPIN.com).
