Adam Gnade & The Hot Earth All-stars is the name of Adam Gnade's latest band, and you can hear the first track from their forthcoming EP Americans, below.

'You Got Mean' starts off in typical Gnade fashion - "we can be so much better, but we're not" - but this time we're treated to a slightly different backing - and one that sounds more like Gnade when he plays live with his friends (though not quite like his fantasy band).

Basically this is very exciting. If the EP (which still needs a label home!) is half as good as this track, then we might have something rather special on our hands.
