Their new album Ursa Major doesn’t drop until August 18, but because you Music Mixers lead a totally charmed life, you can hear Third Eye Blind’s new single “Don’t Believe a Word” right here, right now. The ’90s vets, presumed dead by many, have, it seems, merely been regrouping; by playing on college campuses across the nation, they’ve cultivated a fresh fanbase whose memories of “Jumper” may not transcend its use in the recent Yes Man, but who love to doot-doot-doot all the same. (Believe the hype: a 3EB show at this year’s SXSW was not only surprisingly well-attended, but the roar that shook the crowd when Stephan Jenkins asked his friends to step back from that ledge rivaled anything Metallica had produced in the same Stubbs backyard the night before.)

So go ahead and press play, then tell us, Mixers: how’s it gonna be? Are you ready for Third Eye Blind’s return? And is “Don’t Believe a Word” a worthy successor to such irresistable past gems like “Semi-Charmed Life” and “Never Let You Go”? (Yes, I both bought and enjoyed Blue, okay?)
