Do you like The Shins? Do you know a thing or two about music? Can you play one of The Shins’ new songs? Then this is the post for you!

In honor of the release of their forthcoming album, Heartworms, The Shins are giving fans the chance to own their “old but very nice” touring van, which they bought back when they were first signed.

Think of all the cool things you could do with this van. (Road trips! Camping! Way cooler commute to work!)

To enter The Shins’ contest, fans must submit a cover of any song off Heartworms. The band will then pick a winner out of the bunch. Hear some more details and see the van in this announcement from lead singer James Mercer.

So why sell yourself short? Sounds like you’ve got nothing to lose. Play your little Heartworms out, record what you’ve got, and send it to The Shins. You may be able to drive away in some pretty cool Shins memorabilia.
