This week’s round of INDIE or OUTTIE brought back an old friend from simpler times. That friend is Phantom Planet, who returned with their first bit of new music in 11 years via a new track called “BALISONG.”

Originally penned as an Alex Greenwald solo effort, it has since evolved into a full-fledged Phantom Planet tune, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome the “California” band back into our lives. And frankly, we’re all for anything involving Greenwald, from those classic late-’90s GAP commercials to early 2010’s supergroup JJAMZ.

We posted “BALISONG” to indie617 listeners this morning on Morning Glory, and you guys were… INDIE!

Nice one.
