For a week and a half, Billie Joe has been teasing fans on his Instagram with some interesting tidbits.
It's become evident that a side project called The Longshot will be releasing its debut album. New music is coming "eventually sooner or later...probably sooner," according to the bio of a cryptic Instagram account that is currently only accepting certain follow requests.
Last night, however, new music did indeed come. Bay Area radio station ALT 105.3 played a full song titled "Love Is For Losers" last night on its Souncheck program. The DJ received the music in the form of a strange box covered in Billie Joe artwork that appeared on the steps of his home. Here's that song:
UPDATE! A sneaky, cryptic text message has confirmed that the song is the title track from the upcoming release "Love is for Losers." Yes, that WAS "Love is for Losers", the first single from @billiejoe's project The Longshot on @ALT1053Radio .

We aren't yet sure when we'll see the full album. Judging based on the track's catchy garage-rock vibe that Billie Joe has obviously mastered, we're excited. Keep checking our site and social media accounts to stay up to date!
