Animal Collective's upcoming 11th studio album is titled Painting With and is due February 19, 2016 on Domino records. The sweltering Sunshine State becomes "FloriDada" in the first official single, which the band shared today.
A funny thing you might note about the song is that it's the group's first official foray into the world of art that is Dada- and Cubism. For those familiar with the band's surreal, mind-altering sonic textures, the conceptual theme is a great showpiece for the band, comprised of Portner (Avey Tare), Lennox (Panda Bear), and Brian Weitz (Geologist) on this album cycle. You'll hear that aesthetic at the forefront on "FloriDada," a frenetic, droning anthem pulsing with polyrhythms.
Packaging and format details include: "Standard CD, LP, and a deluxe LP + 7" + zoetropic turntable slipmat formats. The album in CD and LP formats will be available in three different covers, featuring each Animal Collective member - Avey Tare, Geologist, and Panda Bear - as painted by Brian DeGraw. The deluxe LP + 7" + turntable slipmat format exclusively available via the Animal Collective and Domino UK webstores includes a choice of one of the three covers, in addition to a limited edition 7" featuring two exclusive non-album tracks mailed at a later date, and a slipmat that animates when activated in part with a strobe light. All pre-orders come with an instant download of 'FloriDada.'"
