Music is accompanied by video shot at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary

Animal Collective have posted new song ‘Michael, Remember’, a 23-minute improvised jam that, according to Pitchfork, was recorded during a practice session last May.

The track has been 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.

The band released their last record, ‘Centipede Hz’, in 2012. Having confirmed earlier this year that they were heading back into the studio to record new music, it was reported in July that recording had drawn to a close.

The as-yet-untitled new album will be Animal Collective’s 10th studio full-length.

Speaking about their plans to record the album back in March, Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear) said, “I’ve spent the past five weeks or so furiously trying to crank out stuff, and I’m sure Dave [Portner] is doing the same.”

“I’m sure all of the guys are working on stuff. No concrete plans to go into the studio as of yet, no dates or anything, but I think it’s safe to say that some time this year we’ll record.”
