Animal Collective have unveiled their new single 'Today's Supernatural'. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.

The track is the first to be taken from the Baltimore electro-psych band's new album 'Centipede Hz'. The album, which is the band's first studio effort since 2009's 'Merriweather Post Pavilion', will be released on September 3. It will be their 10th album and follows the release of 2010's "visual album" 'ODDSAC'.

Speaking previously about the album, band member Brian Weitz said they had "gone back to their roots" on the new record and moved away from the sample-heavy direction of 'Merriweather Post Pavilion'.

Asked how it differed from their previous albums, Weitz said: "We all moved back to Baltimore, the last few records we've written apart and by sending each other stuff. This time we all wanted to write in the same room together. We went back to our roots and we got a little practice space in this barn on Josh's [Dibb – fellow band member] mum's property and it was like being a garage band again."

He continued: "'Merriweather Post Pavilion' was a very sample-heavy record, we made it piece by piece in the studio, we constructed it. This one we wrote as a rock band in a room and we wanted to record it that way."

Animal Collective will come to the UK and Ireland for a short tour this November. They will play four shows in London, Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester.
