Animal Collective have revealed brand new single ‘Strung With Everything’, taken from their 11th studio album ‘Time Skiffs’, due out on 04 February 2022.
The track is accompanied by an Abby Portner-directed animated music video and will feature on the quartet’s upcoming record alongside previously released songs ‘Prester John’ and ‘Walker’.
Portner commented, “Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper…I have been editing together symbols and coloured static silhouettes that match the music’s feeling and rhythm. The videos are like pictographs that tell a story organically and simply. For the ‘Strung with Everything’ video we wanted to continue with this process to match the style of the band’s live shows in a music video.”
