Animal Collective are currently streaming their brand new album, 'Centipede Hz', ahead of its official release.

The Baltimore electro-psych band don't release their 10th studio LP until September 3, but fans can hear the LP now at www.radio.myanimalhome.net - the band's online radio station which they launched last month. You can also watch the video for their new single 'Today's Supernatural' by clicking at the bottom of the page.

Speaking previously about the album – which is the follow-up to 2009's 'Merriweather Post Pavilion' and follows the release of 2010's "visual album" 'ODDSAC' - 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 their most recent releases.

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.

Animal Collective will play:

London Roundhouse (November 4)
Dublin Vicar Street (6)
Glasgow ABC1 (7)
Manchester Warehouse Project (8)
