With merely weeks left before the March 9 release of Frightened Rabbit's The Winter Of Mixed Drinks via FatCat Records, MySpace Music and NPR are offering a first listen to the band's highly anticipated album.

Starting today, MySpace is streaming the quintet's third full-length in its entirety at www.myspace.com/frightenedrabbit and NPR will begin streaming the LP Saturday, February 27 at www.npr.org/music.

This new DIY clip is actually the second video for the band's new single and was created by the group as an irreverent alternative to the higher production original. "We thought it would be fun to offset the original video with a cheap homemade film in which we look the polar opposite of 'cool', i.e. 'not cool'," reveals lead Rabbit Scott Hutchison. The humorous video places Hutchison in the forefront of the action as his bandmates dress him up in wigs, brush his teeth and apply make up. "My girlfriend turned up halfway through the shoot to find me wandering around wearing an old woman's dress and a tasty blonde syrup [wig] - that was a first," exclaims Hutchison. Admitting there's no real concept behind the video, Hutchison penned the amusing bit effortlessly. "I sat and storyboarded the whole thing one evening, writing down a series of bits that made me chuckle, and then we threw them all together and had a large collective chuckle for about 8 hours," explains Hutchison.

Frightened Rabbit are currently gearing up for a series of shows in the UK and will return to the States in March for several gigs at SXSW. They will kick off their extensive North American tour at day two of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival on Saturday, April 17.
