MAPS - 'To the Sky'

I've written about MAPS before, but this weekend marks the NYC debut of James Chapman's live incarnation. And timely is such, that a new single and video have emerged from the Mercury Music Prize nominated album "We Can Create". 'To the Sky' will be released via Mute Records in the UK on October 8th, with a US release to follow shortly after.

Maps will be playing a pair of live shows in NYC this weekend - Mercury Lounge on Friday (early show) and Luna Lounge in Brooklyn on Saturday.

As I mentioned, "We Can Create" was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize this year. Here is their performance of 'It Will Find You' from the awards show, with Jools Holland introducing them...
