Animal Collective return with video for new single ‘Prester John,’ announce forthcoming album ‘Time Skiffs’

Animal Collective are back to announce their new album, Time Skiffs, out February 4th via Domino. As part of the announcement, they’ve shared a video for their new single, “Prester John.”

Time Skiffs marks the follow-up to 2016’s Painting With. It’s set to feature nine new tunes from Avey Tare, Deakin, Geologist, and Panda Bear, mixed by Marta Salogni. Toady’s preview, “Prester John,” actually weaves together two songs. One of the tracks is from Avey Tare and the other is from Panda Bear. Alongside the track, Animal Collective have shared a video, directed by Jason Lester.

The pulsing new track, “Prester John,” comes packed with the band’s quintessential glitchy instrumental lines and dreamy vocals. The accompanying video opens with captivating clips of colourful smoke. As the video progresses, Animal Collective stand in a cave-like room, performing along to the tune.

Watch the video for “Prester John” below.

Time Skiffs marks Animal Collective’s first studio album in over five years. The album “feels like listening in on a conversation among four old friends, just as it felt during their inchoate early days or their Strawberry Jam heyday,” according to a release. “These nine songs are love letters, distress signals, en plein air observations, and relaxation hymns, the collected transmissions of four people who have grown into relationships and parenthood and adult worry.”
