(Radio.com) It's no secret that Incubus has been working on a new album for a while; guitarist Mike Einziger has shared a number of in-studio clips on social media over the past few weeks. But what fans haven't been privy to is the music itself. With nearly five years since their last album, [2011's If Not Now, When?] there's a lot of speculation about the direction their music will take this time around.

Lisa Worden, Music Director at Los Angeles alternative rock station, KROQ-FM [a Radio.com affiliate], has heard seven tracks from the album. Radio.com caught up with Worden to chat about her reaction to the new music.

"The first single, called 'Nimble Bastard,'--which we'll be world premiering February 16 on The Kevin & Bean Show--is a rocker," says Worden enthusiastically. She describes the sound as "going back to their roots" with their signature fat bassline and harder guitars… "'Pardon Me,' to me, is kind of a medium tempo rock song. This is Megalomaniac," she says referring to the band's 20o4 hit.

Speaking of the guitars, Worden says, "Einziger goes off! He's got a really rad guitar solo right in the middle of the song." And she notes that Brandon's voice has never sounded better. "It starts with the vocal, which I love. It's identifiable from the first second." Read more here.
