Beauty Pill’s Chad Clark likes to say that “Ann the Word” changed his life. The song, a haunting and cinematic demo the band posted to its MySpace in 2006, was a sharp left turn from the band’s earlier material—-and Clark says the positive response to “Ann the Word” has influenced the band’s direction since.

In the meantime, the band’s publicist just sent a press release containing an mp3 of “Ann the World,” which was previously only streamable on MySpace. Enjoy:
