Real Estate release Atlas, their highly anticipated third album, through Domino on March 3rd and have today shared another glimpse of its many charms in the shape of new song "Crime."

To accompany the song the band has created a loving homage to the classic Youtube Guitar Tab tutorial format with singer/guitarist Martin Courtney and guitarist Matt Mondanile performing their respective guitar parts. The video was filmed by Charles Poekel and Brooke Salisbury and edited / animated by Natalia Stuyk.

Watch the Guitar Tab video HERE.

A shimmering, intricate pop song that is at once immediate and meditative, "Crime" is perhaps is a perfect three minute encapsulation of everything that has made Real Estate so endeared to their devoted fanbase.

The most collaborative Real Estate record to date, Atlas was written by Martin Courtney, Matt Mondanile, Alex Bleeker and Jackson Pollis while cruising through the Arizona desert and during a presser in Madrid, in a practice room in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and in an attic in the band's hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey. It was recorded in the summer of 2013 in Chicago with Tom Schick (Sean Lennon, Low, Cibo Matto) at Wilco's loft studio where new member Matt Kallman (formerly of Girls) joined the fold on keyboards.

Atlas will be released on March 3rd 2014 and will be available on CD (WIGCD320), LP (WIGLP320) and digitally (WIG320D). iTunes pre-orders will come with an instant download of ‘Talking Backwards’.
