The Monkees announced several months ago that they would be releasing a new album with the aid of songwriters and fellow musicians like Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Andy Partridge (XTC), and others.

“She Makes Me Laugh” is the first single released by the band and it’s crafted by none other than Weezer’s Cuomo. The song has the classic Monkees sound accompanied by Cuomo’s natural ability to create a catchy hook.

More importantly, it’s just an excellent, feel-good song, which is right up the alley of any Monkees fan. The lyric video also has a nostalgic feel with the Archie-like comic strip. Listen to “She Makes Me Laugh” below.



Good Times!, the Monkees twelfth studio album, is set for release on May 27, 2016.
