Animal Collective Announce New Album Strawberry Jam For Fall + MP3
By: Spacelab Research Staff
Screaming back to the world from the wilderness, Animal Collective have announced some details around the upcoming release of their new Album Strawberry Jam. They'll release the album in September and have already started to play live shows.
The songs were written in international hotspots like New York, Lisbon, Paris and Baltimore (who knew?) by Avey Tare and Panda Bear, with the rest of the band adding a more complete sound as they all hooked up to work through the music.
The band recorded the album at the Wavelab in Tucson with Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective) as the producer, then headed back to Brooklyn for the final mixdown with Nicholas Vernhes at the Rare Book Room.
Strawberry Jam is due for release in September via Domino Records. The band recently made the move to Domino after releasing music on the UK-based FatCat Records.
Domino Records said "We here at Domino are hugely excited to have signed a long term worldwide recording agreement with Animal Collective, one of of the most unique and visionary and extraordinary groups in America, and indeed the known universe."
The band is out playing live shows right now with Danielson, Sir Richard Bishop, and Marnie Stern.
