Tune-Yards have revealed new song ‘Wait For A Minute’, taken from new album ‘Nikki Nack.’

Merrill Garbus’ musical project will release ‘Nikki Nack’ on May 5. It is the follow-up to 2011’s ‘w h o k i l l’. Click above to listen to ‘Wait For A Minute’, which is the second song to be released from the album, following ‘Water Fountain’, which was unveiled last month. Producers on ‘Nikki Nack’ include John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, MIA) and Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi).

Speaking about the Malay-produced ‘Wait For A Minute’, Garbus commented: “We were nervous to work with Malay, as we’d never had experience with producers before. But he quickly gave us confidence, teaching us to create a full sound while maintaining a very sparse instrumentation. The tiny details give the song depth, so the vocal is allowed to take up a lot of space.”

Tune-Yards will play Glastonbury, Blissfields and End of the Road Festivals this summer, as well as a number of UK headline dates.
