EastWest Studios have posted to their Instagram account that Animal Collective have finished recording their new album. The studio had this to say:
“Today Animal Collective finished recording their new album in Studio 3. We are so proud of them and this album, can’t wait to hear it!!! Cheers!”
Studio 3 has been used by the likes of iconic ’60s bands The Mamas and the Papas and The Beach Boys, right down to contemporary industry heavyweights such as Nas and Frank Ocean.
It will be the band’s first work since 2012’s Centipede Hz, in which time both Panda Bear and Avey Tare have released solo work. The work is currently untitled and will be the 10th full-length studio album.
While we patiently await any more info, here’s something from the amazing Merriweather Post Pavilion to get us a little bit excited.
