Ezra Koenig just announced on Twitter that a free download of track 1 “Horchata” from their upcoming album Contra is available from their website.

According to Wikipedia, horchata is “is the name for several kinds of traditional beverages, made of ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, barley or tigernuts (chufas).” As for the track itself, it still has a bit of an afro-pop sound that doesn’t sound dissimilar to their debut album, though you can hear more of the California influence the band has been promising in recent interviews. Good stuff.
