It has been seven years since Butch, Shirley, Duke and Steve have released a new album, and to celebrate the forthcoming release of Not Your Kind Of People, Garbage are giving away the first single ‘Blood For Poppies’.

The band said in a press release “We decided to give the track to our fans first. We’ve always had the most amazingly loyal fans, and we wanted to show them just how much they mean to us by setting it free to them first.”

Vampish frontwoman Shirley Manson spoke about the inspiration for the track. She said, “’Blood For Poppies’ is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream. The inspiration came from a story I had read in The Los Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary Restrepo. It’s not literal in any sense whatsoever but it’s a song about disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of insanity.”

Fans can head over to the band’s website here to grab a digital copy of ‘Blood For Poppies’; all it takes is an email address.

The band will also be releasing a limited edition version of the single on white vinyl, backed by a remix of the track by Butch Vig, for Record Store Day on April 21.

Not Your Kind Of People will be released on May 15.
