After their entire album leaked on the Internet last week, Bloc Party has officially released "The Prayer," the first single from its forthcoming album, A Weekend in the City. With its haunting tribal beginning, "The Prayer" is setting up the band's sophomore album to take Bloc Party in a new direction from its critically acclaimed debut, Silent Alarm. After the album leaked, a lot of people in the blogging world complained they didn't like it -- but fail to remember that bands have to grow. Frankly, I'm excited for this new chapter in Bloc Party's life cycle. I've heard some of the songs and think this album is going to be great.
