Following the reveal of a reunion last month, Nickel Creek is slowly rolling out new music, ahead of their album's release on April 1. Lifted from their highly anticipated album A Dotted Line, the new track (to the left), called "21st of May," is a foot-stomping romp with groovy guitar plucking.

When fans pre-order the new album, they will get an instant download of the song, as well as previously unveiled tunes "Destination" and "Love Of Mine."

The group will then hit the road in support of the new project, launching on April 5 at the Prairie Home Companion in New York City. Sojourning throughout the country, Nicke Creek will hit many of the country's biggest cities, including Los Angeles and San Diego, before wrapping at the Pickathon in Happy Valley, Ore. at the beginning of August.
