Broken Bells

The High Road (3:51)

Made available as a free download on their official site on Dec. 21, 2009, "The High Road" is the debut single of Broken Bells, a collaboration project between Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (The Shins).

According to the The High Road Songfacts, the song juxtaposes an uplifting melodic chorus with a depressing lyric about not knowing if the dead can talk, or even not knowing if you're alive.

"The High Road" was featured during the end credits of Episode 7 of the first season of the HBO series "How to Make It In America", originally aired on March 28, 2010.
