New Barenaked Ladies single as free, remixable multitracks

The Canadian band Barenaked Ladies have pre-released a track from their upcoming album Barenaked Ladies Are Me, in a four-track mix that's ready for remixing, and free. They're planning to do more of the same with their future releases.

I used to see BNL play at my local shopping mall, the Scarborough Town Centre, when all they'd released was an indie cassette tape with an amazing cover of Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" on it, and I'm so amazingly glad to see them still making great music. What's more, the band's frontman, Steve Page, is also fronting a group of Canadian musicians who've spoken out against DRM and suing fans and other music label shenanigans.

Best of all -- they're releasing the next album as a 15-song digital version as well as a 13-song CD, so I can get their music without having to take another piece of slow-decaying, space-hogging media into my already overcrowded home. Link (Thanks, Frank!)
