Sundays Without You

As some of you may have heard, Liane Hansen is retiring from NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday after 22 years as host. Liane has been amazingly supportive of us throughout her years, doing some fantastic features about our releases. (In case you missed them, here are links to the stories she did for They're Everywhere and free*.)

While we were recently in the studio putting the polish on some tracks for our forthcoming release, Jim got inspired to write a little musical valentine for Liane. Listen to it here:

Listeners of Weekend Edition Sunday will know that Will Shortz regularly offers a Sunday Puzzle for listeners to solve. Inspired by the feature, JBE embedded a Sunday Puzzle into the lyrics of Sundays Without You. Here it is in more detail:

Think of a word one might use to describe Liane. The middle four letters, when rearranged, form another word for "good bye".

Think you can figure out the puzzle? Submit your answer by 12:59pm EST on Thursday, June 2 for a chance to win an exclusive track off of our next release before it is available. We'll pick a winner at random from the correct submissions. Good luck!
