Caribou "Never Come Back"

Dan Snaith aka Caribou has shared “Never Come Back.” The track, off his forthcoming release Suddenly, will be released Feb 28th via Merge/City Slang Records. In support of the album, Caribou will tour North America in March with support from Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Then heads to the UK and Europe for additional dates which include festivals Osheaga Festival in Montreal.

Caribou on “Never Come Back:”

“Never Come Back was the first track from Suddenly that I finished. It came together very quickly and was one of those tracks that is a lot fun to make. As soon as I landed on the main synthesizer chords and the repeated refrain the rest came together very quickly and naturally. I felt like it was my job to get out of the way and not over complicate or over think it. Sometimes the best pleasures are the simple ones.”

As with previous Caribou albums, Suddenly was mined from hundreds of draft ideas (this time over 900). “I record music every day, and I love it – as much or more than I have always done. I feel very lucky – the thrill has never, ever left me,” Snaith says.

There is a moment where the daunting piling up of rough ideas morphs into an album quickly taking shape. “For the last few albums at least, there’s been a point about three-quarters of the way through where I work late into the night (as usual), but when I try and go to bed, ideas keep forcing me to get up and go back to the studio again,” Snaith recalls. “It happens over and over in one night. I can feel the gears whirring as I lie there trying to sleep, and I can’t ignore the ideas for fear that it will be gone when I wake up the next morning.”
