Animal Collective reveal new song ‘Lying In The Grass’ via collaborative painting app

Band release new album 'Painting With' in February

Animal Collective have showcased a new track via their own app.

The band release new album ‘Painting With’ next month, now unveiling a Painting With app, which allows users to paint with others. See more about the app in the tutorial video below.

The app features new song ‘Lying In The Grass’. The track will be released digitally on Monday (February 1).

The US band will release the follow up to 2012’s ‘Centipede Hz’ on February 19. The album is described as “Warm and personal, kaleidoscopic and high definition”, and the band have worked on it throughout 2015, with band member Avey Tare calling the material “really short songs: no B.S, get in, get out material…”

Recorded at EastWest Studios in Hollywood, once home to sessions by The Beach Boys and Marvin Gaye, the album features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson.

The CD and LP formats of the album will be available in three different covers – featuring Animal Collective members Avey Tare, Geologist, and Panda Bear, respectively – as painted by artist Brian DeGraw.

Last year Animal Collective posted new song ‘Michael, Remember’, a 23-minute improvised jam that was recorded during a practice session in May 2014.

The track was released alongside footage shot in July 2014 by marine biologist Colin Foord at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the Gulf of Mexico.
