“My Lovely Cat” by Deerhoof

Deerhoof have dropped “My Lovely Cat,” their new single dedicated to world-famous cat Lil Bub. The track was recorded and mixed by Mike Bridavsky in Winnipeg, Canada’s No Fun Club, and mastered by Bridavsky at Russian Recording. With lyrics written and sung in Japanese by Satomi Matsuzaki (who also illustrated its adorable artwork), “My Lovely Cat” is as groovy as it is bittersweet, and marks Deerhoof’s first new music since their 2021 LP, Actually, You Can Joyful Noise Recordings.

“If you were going to compose a song about a cute cat from the internet, and then track down the guy known for their cute cat from the internet to produce it, you would be shrewd indeed. This we did not do, because we didn’t know about Mike Bridavsky or Lil Bub when we wrote the song. Well, we think about him now: a true collaborator and artist and friend!” – Deerhoof

Deerhoof are playing select headline west coast dates this fall. Recent shows in Europe have featured a different new song. Stay tuned for more new music from Deerhoof in 2023. In the meantime, enjoy the English translation of “My Lovely Cat:”
