Animal Collective release new song “FloriDada,” announce shows at Union Transfer, World Cafe Live at the Queen
Animal Collective have announced the release of Painting With, the experimental-pop band’s eleventh studio record and follow-up to 2012’s Centipede Hz. With the announcement comes a national tour, which kicks off on February 19th at Union Transfer and wraps up on May 13th in Wilmington at World Cafe Live at the Queen.
The album’s first track and first single is “FloriDada,” a supremely colorful, textural and happy-sounding song that introduces us to the influences and themes of the LP. From the press release:
[Painting With is] warm and personal, kaleidoscopic and high definition, concerned with art (Cubism, Dadaism, and the distorted way those artists viewed the world) and the human experience, and the meeting of both – creating something elemental, joyous, and unmistakably Animal Collective.
Tickets for the all-ages shows go on sale this Friday, December 11th and will be available here. Listen to “FloriDada” from the new record below.
