Listen: Animal Collective – ‘Today’s Supernatural’

Written by Kiel Egging on July 30, 2012

Baltimore electro act Animal Collective have unveiled the first single off their forthcoming album, Centripede Hz.

Today’s Supernatural is the first track to be featured from Centipede Hz – which is the band’s tenth album, due for release on September 3.

Frontman Brian Weitz has previously told NME that the band have “gone back to their roots” on their forthcoming record and moved away from the sample-heavy direction of their last studio effort: 2009’s Merriweather Post Pavilion.

“We all moved back to Baltimore; the last few records we’ve written apart and by sending each other stuff,” he said.

“This time we all wanted to write in the same room together. We went back to our roots and we got a little practice space in this barn on Josh’s (Dibb) mum’s property and it was like being a garage band again.”

Merriweather Post Pavilion was a very sample-heavy record; we made it piece by piece in the studio, we constructed it. This one we wrote as a rock band in a room and we wanted to record it that way.”

Animal Collective will play a handful of shows in the UK and Ireland in November – no word on any Australian dates yet though.
