When Garbage announced a month ago that they were making a triumphant return after a four year hiatus, they promised that they would be returning to a sound similar to their first album. Now you can hear a new track, "Empty," from their upcoming LP Strange Little Birds, and know they were speaking truth. It's classic old-school Garbage, right down to the soaring chorus ("I'm so empty/You're all I'm thinking about") that will send you right back to your teenaged days, lying on your bed, full of anguished, unrequited love/lust, furiously scribbling on your sneakers with a ballpoint pen to make them look unique.
