In December, Wire announced the spring release of a new album titled Change Becomes Us. The album features newly recorded material originally written (but never released) in 1979 & 1980. According to the band, some of the songs originally existed as impromptu/one-off sketches, but after some work live and in the studio, the tracks organically evolved into what they term a "fascinating hybrid." Pitchfork debuted the first track from album, "Doubles and Trebles" on Wednesday and can be heard here.

Meanwhile, a book on Wire written by Wilson Neate will be also be published in the spring to coincide with the release of their album. Read & Burn: A Book About Wire, isn't an official Wire biography, however all the key players in Wire were interviewed and participated in the book. The band themselves are expecting it to be more of a "warts and all" exploration of their complex relationship (and not a sugarcoated or fluffy/kiss up type of book).

Change Becomes Us and Read & Burn: A Book About Wire will be released on March 26th and can be pre-ordered through the official Wire store (Read & Burn is bundled with the album). The tracklisting for Change Becomes Us is posted below:
