In an interview with Madison.com, Animal Collective member Avey Tare revealed that the experimental-psychedelic band is back to work on their new LP. The album will be the first LP the band has released since 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion and the first to feature on-again, off-again guitarist Deakin since Strawberry Jam in 2007.
In the interview, Tare revealed the group has finished a two-week writing session in Baltimore, which yielded five new tracks. Recording for the album will begin in January and the group will be bringing in approximately 15 new tracks according to a July piece with Tare.
Considering the universal acclaim Merriweather Post Pavilion received, I personally have high hopes for this new AC release. Given that the band has had two years to prepare for the record, it should continue their creative streak, which is seemingly endless.
