Tune-Yards reveal new album

Tune-Yards will release their new album I can feel you creep into my private life on January 19th, via 4AD.

Tune-Yards’ will release their new album I can feel you creep into my private life on January 19th. The twelve new tracks 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. Today, Tune-Yards reveals the new song “Look at Your Hands”.

Bandleader Merrill Garbus on “Take A Look At Your Hands”: “Yes, the world is a mess, but I've been attempting to look more and more inward: how do all of these "isms" that we live in manifest in me, in my daily activities, interactions?  Some of the '80s throwback production came from wanting the vocals to sound robotic, maybe to counter the sincerity of the lyrics. I started sampling my vocals in an MPC which I've wanted to do for years, and there was something that felt really right about my voice being trapped in a machine.”

On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards is officially a duo. 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 andmastered in Harlem, NY by Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper). The Oakland-based act has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as writing track, ‘Action,’ from Mavis Staples’ 2016 Livin’ on a High Note album. Tune-Yards has confirmed a headlining North American tour beginning on 15 th February, 2018, including shows at Oakland’s Fox Theater and concluding at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel. A limited ticket presale for the winter shows is currently underway, with all shows going on sale to the public this Friday, October 20. Please visit tuneyards.com for more information. $1 from every ticket will be donated to various non-profits.
