“Arabian Heights” is the driving new track from The Afghan Whigs’ forthcoming album, In Spades, due out May 5th via Sub Pop. The song exudes the gutbucket exoticism of Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti writ large, driven by drummer Patrick Keeler’s bravura, tribal cadences. Stream it below.

Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli says of Keeler’s contribution, “Rick [Nelson], who engineered the album got incredible drum sounds, and what Patrick does on that song is a master class in drumming.”

In Spades is now available for pre-order on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL from Sub Pop.

LP pre-orders of In Spades will receive the “Loser” edition on 180-gram, white-chocolate vinyl (while supplies last). A new T-shirt design, along with cassette versions of The Afghan Whigs’ classic Sub Pop albums Up In It and Congregation, are now also available.
