We're aching for some new Old 97's around here. The band's new album -- its first in four years -- will be hitting stores in mid-May. That's too long. Looks like the people at Hypeful agree. The site has posted an mp3 of Old 97's new single, "Dance With Me." The song is off the aforementioned forthcoming album titled Blame It On Gravity. Let us know what you think of the new Old 97's stuff. As you may recall, Murry Hammond thinks you'll love it. -- Chelsea Ide
