New wave stalwarts Devo have finally released their ode to Seamus Romney, who was famously tied to the roof of the Romney family car on one of their road trips in 1983. The band says they don’t have a full album in the works, but are not against posting songs as they are created.

Devo last released an album of new music 19 years ago. The band of nerds is back in 2010 with a new album, and today’s Spotlight song is the first from the new effort. “Fresh” is not breaking any molds for Devo, but it isn’t just the same old thing, either. While sounding like Devo, the song doesn’t sound stale or dated. It’s nice to hear a band take such a long break and pick up right where they left off.

Reaction to the song was very positive. Jeff said, “I would call that an instant classic.” Chris said, “I liked it; it sounded like Devo. They aren’t deviating from their normal thing, so I like it.” Pauly gave it 3.5 stars saying, “Not sure yet. Sounds like devo aright.”

If you missed today’s Spotlight, you can stream the song (and get a free download) on the band’s official website. Devo can also be found on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

What do you think of the song?
