The Shins owe quite a bit of their mainstream success to Zach Braff’s 2004 film, Garden State. With two songs featured on the soundtrack — one of which will change your life, I swear — the film’s unexpected success introduced James Mercer and Co. to a much wider audience. Now, Braff and The Shins join forces once again for his new film, Wish I Was Here.

For their part, The Shins contributed a brand new song called “So Now What”. It’s made for the radio, with swirling synths and electric guitars soundtrack Mercer’s unmistakable croon. Listen to the song in full below.
