New Doors Song, ‘She Smells So Nice,’ Debuts Online

Since Jim Morrison died some 40 years ago, you’d think the Doors would’ve run out of new material to release by now — but you’d be wrong. In fact, they’re dropping a new single today.

Producer Bruce Botnick found the track, titled ‘She Smells So Nice,’ while sifting through the band’s ‘L.A. Woman’ sessions, and it’s been released via the band’s Facebook page. The song finds the band in loose, countrified blues mode, with Morrison running through his version of the genre’s traditional lyrical playbook — always making sure to repeat the good lines twice right in a row — over an upbeat rolling bassline and Robbie Krieger’s excellent chicken-scratch guitar work.

And if the new single isn’t enough to satisfy your Doors jones, never fear — you can also look forward to a double-disc ‘L.A. Woman’ reissue, which will have eight previously-unreleased alternate versions of album tracks, rehearsal reels and a behind-the-scenes DVD. In addition, look for a new documentary about the album, ‘Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman,’ on DVD/Blu-ray. Both are slated for release Jan. 24.
