Animal Collective have announced details of a remix EP, which is set for release on May 27.

The EP draws on material from the Baltimore electro-psych outfit's tenth studio LP 'Centipede Hz', which was released last September (2012). The EP features remixes of the track 'Monkey Riches' by Gang Gang Dance's Brian Degraw (which you can listen to below), Chicago house producer Traxman and New York underground dance producers Teengirl Fantasy. It also features a remix of 'New Town Burnout' by Seattle based hip-hop collective Shabazz Palaces.

The tracklisting for 'Monkey Been to Burn Town' is:

'Monkey Riches' (Brian DeGraw [Gang Gang Dance] Remix)
'Monkey Riches' (Tha Traxman Teklife Remix)
'New Town Burnout' (Shabazz Palaces Remix)?
'Monkey Riches' (Teengirl Fantasy Remix)


Animal Collective are set to return to the UK this summer to headline Field Day festival in London. They will also headline
Primavera Sound in Barcelona.

Speaking previously about 'Centipede Hz' – 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.
