Phish has still got it. The legendary band has been jamming for more than 30 years now, but if you're not one of the die-hard "Phans" that flock to their concerts hours in advance, the group's latest track, "Waiting All Night," is an ideal introduction to their sound. The song is a gorgeous, breezy ballad that floats on the back of a loping bass groove and some angelic harmonies.

The cut is off Phish's first album in five years, Fuego, to be released June 24. Listen below.
