Animal Collective have announced in quite a curious way, that the band will soon be releasing a brand new album titled Tangerine Reef. The album is preceded by their latest single ‘Hair Cutter’ which you can hear below.
The album was announced after a fan asked the band on Instagram why he had found a pre-order link to the album to which they replied “It was supposed to be announced on the 16th,” and it indeed was.
Previously found on retailer Fnac website the new album will be an audio-visual album and will speak to the band’s innate creativity. It was described as such on the website ”Animal Collective collaborated with the collective Coral Morphologic during a series of performances in order to alert and sensitize individuals to reef protection. The result is Tangerine Reef, the soundtrack of a planetary cause.”
So while we wait until August 16th for the album proper, you can take a listen to ‘Hair Cutter’ to get you in the mood.
