If you managed to snag a copy of the Circa Survive/Sunny Day Real Estate split on Record Store Day, you've already heard their new song 'Lipton Witch'. For those of us that didn't (myself included), they posted the song for us all to revel in. It's their first new track since their 2000 album The Rising Tide and it's every bit as nostalgic, emotional, and all-around awesome as you'd think it would be.

Brandon Ekstrom of Circa Survive talked about how the collaboration came to be in a statement: “I went to see a few of the Sunny Day Real Estate shows when they toured in 2009 and I knew they’d written and recorded at least one song during that time. I got Jeremy Enigk’s info from a mutual friend and emailed him asking if they had anything planned with the track. I knew they were on a hiatus and I hated the idea of that song never being released. Jeremy spoke with the other guys who all seemed interested to do the split I had I proposed. We had a B-side we’d been sitting on that had a mellower vibe which seemed to balance their more rocking song in a way that another upbeat jam might not have. I couldn’t be more happy that this is happening. I honestly think this one of the best songs Sunny Day has ever written and I’m really happy that fans are going to get to hear it.”
