Breaking (Sorta): Hear a 30-second clip of "Mess of Me"

You can hear a 30-second clip of "Mess of Me" here. It's going to be featured on the "Nu Traxx Series," a professional radio DJ's Music compilation cd.

^Sounds pretty epic. It's shipping out on September 4th. On that website, Switchfoot are also featured as a "Who's Hot" artist, along with Shakira, Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Creed.



----------

UPDATE! (12:40 PM PST): "Mess of Me" has been added to WIIL-FM in Chicago (Active Rock).



----------

Also, "Mess of Me" is starting to spread across the net, gaining some interest from around.

Music Remedy has posted Switchfoot's song, "Mess of Me" as an upcoming new song, with the likes of Weezer and All Time Low.

----------

[TurnTheRadioOn] has listed "Mess of Me" as one of the new songs out this week (the week of August 26), under the Active/Mainstream Rock format

Active/Mainstream Rock
KISS - Modern Day Delilah
CHILDREN OF BODOM - Rebel Yell
SCARLET CARSON - Daddy's Little Girl
SWITCHFOOT - Mess Of Me


^We are still checking for accuracy, but we'll update as soon as we hear anything.

And, The Album Art Exchange did a nice little feature of the "Hello Hurricane" album art recently, saying:

I like the album cover for Hello Hurricane. It reminds me of the Russell Munson photos in Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull. You can almost imagine that each bird has a unique personality.

how are these radio stations getting MoM already, i thought it was supposed to release in late September?

Job said...

I have a couple of theories:

1. My theory is that Atlantic is shipping them out early to several key radio stations.

2. The song has been made available on the online databases that all radio programmers use, and the impact date is when Atlantic will ship an actual cd to stations, or when a big push is made.

Either way, the song has been played. let the madness begin!

I can answer that question if you don't mind me butting in...
@Jesse: Switchfoot's label has released the song to particular radio stations who request it and that they can trust. Probably so that people can get a feel for it before they buy it.

Oh and BTW anyone realise that its the 28th and still no pre-sale. I'm worrying now. I mean whats going on that they keep delaying it? I hope everything is coming along okay.

Well, in regards to the 28th pre-order thing...I just went on bandfarm switchfoot and it still says "out of stock" however, the album artwork has been placed in the album and the background of the website also has the hello hurricane stuff on it, it looks like a theme. So i think they're getting for pre-orders very very soon !!...
