Tune-Yards: new album out today!
"I can feel you creep into my private life" in now available everywhere
We are excited to announce that "I can feel you creep into my private life" by Tune-Yards is out today, 19th January 2018 on 4AD. Click here to download or listen to the album.
On Tune-Yards’ magnum opus, thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards’ most immediate and upbeat music yet – this is music to dance to.
As the first piece of the album, Tune-Yards released a new song - electronic vibes, art-pop, 80's tasted "Look at Your Hands" followed by their second video "ABC 123" and their most recent release "Heart Attack".
On "I can feel you creep into my private life", Tune-Yards is officially a duo. Merrill Garbus is joined by long-time collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with a mixer Mikaelin “Blue” Bluespruce (Solange, Skepta, Kendrick Lamar). Much of the album was recorded at John Vanderslice’s new studio, Tiny Telephone Oakland, in Oakland, CA and mastered in Harlem, NY by Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper).
Tune-Yard’s previous album 2014 "Nikki Nack" was one of the most well received of that year, and since its release the Oakland-based act has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as penning the standout track, "Action", from Mavis Staples’ 2016 "Livin’ on a High Note" album.
Tune-Yards has confirmed a headlining North American tour beginning on 15th February, 2018, including shows at Oakland’s Fox Theater and concluding at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel. $1 from every ticket will be donated to various non-profits. They will be touring as a trio; Merrill and Nate plus a new drummer Hamir Atwal.
