OK Go is still resting on the considerably impressive laurels of their last studio effort, but these ex-Chicago boys know that the public demands an unending stream of content if you don't want to be forgotten. Over the holidays they released 12 Days Of OK Go, a delightful collection of unreleased and rare tracks (that you can still download for free). They're kicking of 2013 with a similarly minded if more slowly released collection, Twelve Months Of OK Go. The first track is "This Thing Has Started," and it's a jaunty little number. So jaunty that the band eventually reworked it to become their hit "Here It Goes Again."

Snag the ttrack below and if you want to find out when new tracks are released you can join their free MP3 club. It's totally worth the price of admission!
