Garbage - Strange Little Birds
 

Known Song Titles

On March 10th, Garbage revealed the full tracklisting of Strange Little Birds. Many of the titles have been known for a while now, thanks to the band’s behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram. There are also a couple of new titles. The tracklisting includes 11 new songs:

1. Sometimes
2. Empty 
3. Blackout
4. If I Lost You
5. Night Drive Loneliness
6. Even Though Our Love Is Doomed
7. Magnetized
8. We Never Tell
9. So We Can Stay Alive
10. Teaching Little Fingers To Play
11. Amends

Of the above 11 tracks, all but two have previously been revealed throughout the band’s recording process. Nine of those songs appeared on a studio whiteboard pictured in 2014, though some of the titles have changed slightly. “Teaching Little Fingers To Play” was apparently a working title for the album, based on its placement on the whiteboard in the pictures. 

The only new titles here are “Blackout” and “Amends.”

It is unclear if there will be any deluxe or special edition bonus tracks. There are at least 13 additional song titles that Garbage fans have known since 2014, so hopefully we’ll be able to hear some of them as well.
