They've been away for never-ending seven years, but the new Garbage record Not Your Kind of People is as prolific and genre-defying as anything pulled from their back catalogue. For a teaser, Shirley Manson and crew have premiered their new video Blood for Poppies in aid of this years Record Store Day, on 21st April.

"We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream. We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn't want the shoot to end," Manson explained.

Blood For Poppies will be released as a special edition red 7" on Record Store Day, April 21st, alongside forthcoming new UK single, 'Battle In Me' on May 7th.
