Animal Collective share their latest single “Strung with Everything.” The video for the track, was directed by Abby Portner. “Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper,” says Portner. “I have been editing together symbols and colored 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.” Animal Collective’s new album Time Skiffs, which also features the previously released tracks “Prester John” and “Walker,” is due out February 4 via Domino Records.

“Strung with Everything”

Don’t peak it won’t last that long

or rarely

It’s really new everyday

You need that click and they wrote it wrong


Our terrarium moaned

No sleeping in

There’s a natural clicking

That can be heard in the kinks

You need to forget the trouble maker

Dislike the silicone heads

Fresh sneakers in Babylon get dirty

But we’re digging that way

I cut my pace no more racing urges

How many days do we have?

I like some pressure and it likes pleasing

Some find their way in a hearse

The summer’s here and the time is crying

It spent all year in your head

I’ve got this world (I think)

I build a thing and it does

I do believe there’s a conscious in things

Don’t believe in the time

Just the inside of you

Feel it all collapse

I think that things will fall apart

The grass will find its shape again

The sun’s no better off lately

The sun’s no better off now

They’ll move west when the winter’s biting

Build hotels for their thirst

They’ll move east when the desert’s drying

I moved in

You checked out

We’ve got this heart

It speaks out a thing and we feel

The air sinks in

There’s a mist on the sea

There’s a clearing for rest

There’s a piece of glass

It went into your foot

The fire and bleeds and soaks us out

The grass can’t find the green again

The sun’s no better off lately

The sun’s no better off now

Let’s say tonight you and me

We’ll watch the sky fall into pieces

And for a moment imagine strings

Holding the trees from falling down

You know I would not be afraid

With your head against my shoulder

And even though all hearts are strange
