Animal Collective share visual for latest single ‘Strung with Everything’


Baltimore experimental pop band Animal Collective share their latest single ‘Strung with Everything’, along with its accompanying video directed by Abby Portner.

Animal Collective’s new album Time Skiffs, which also features the previously released tracks ‘Prester John’ and ‘Walker’ is due out February 4. Today, the band announces a UK and European tour set for November of this year, following their spring US tour. They will also perform at Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival on July 9.

Time Skiffs, the quartet’s first studio album in more than half a decade, feels like listening in on a conversation among four old friends, just as it felt during their inchoate early days or their Strawberry Jam heyday.

Listen to ‘Strung With Everything’ by Animal Collective on the Shoot Music New Releases Playlist on Spotify.

These nine songs are love letters, distress signals, en plein air observations, and relaxation hymns, the collected transmissions of four people who have grown into relationships and parenthood and adult worry.

But they are rendered with Animal Collective’s singular sense of exploratory wonder, same as they ever were. There are harmonies so rich you want to skydive through their shared air, textures so fascinating you want to decode their sorcery, rhythms so intricate you want to untangle their sources. Here is Animal Collective past 20, still in search of what’s next.

The band also recently released a recording of a site-specific performance taken from the Music Box Village in New Orleans in March 2018. The Music Box Village is created and built by New Orleans Airlift, an artist-driven non-profit organisation, as one of a range of large-scale community art projects. Proceeds from this release on Bandcamp are going to the three additional musicians involved in the concert – Helen Gillet, Aurora Nealand, and Marion Tortorich. You can watch the performance on YouTube and purchase the audio on Bandcamp.
