Animal Collective Release "Strung With Everything" + Announce UK/EU Touring

Today Animal Collective share their latest single Strung with Everything” via a video directed by Abby Portner“Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper,” says Portner. “I have been editing together symbols and colored static silhouettes that match the music's feeling and rhythm. The videos are like pictographs that tell a story organically and simply. For the ‘Strung with Everything’ video we wanted to continue with this process to match the style of the band's live shows in a music video.” 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. Tickets to the US dates are available HERE; the UK/EU dates will be available for pre-sale this Thursday, January 20 and on general sale this Friday, January 21. All dates are below. 

Watch Animal Collective perform two unreleased Time Skiffs tracks, “Car Keys” and “Dragon Slayer,” plus Merriweather Post Pavilion favorite “In the Flowers” at Pitchfork Music Festival 2021 HERE

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 was created and built by New Orleans Airlift, an artist-driven non-profit organization, 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. Watch the performance on YouTube and purchase the audio on Bandcamp.

Animal Collective Time Skiffs

Album | 4th February 2022

Time Skiffs’ 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. 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's past two decades, still in search of what’s next.
