Tune-Yards are back!
Three years on from releasing their last album ‘Nikki Nack’, Merrill Garbus and co are set to release new album ‘I can feel you creep into my private life’ on 19th January via 4AD. It’s a twelve-track collection that’s set to tackle issues of race, politics, intersectional feminism, and environmental prophecies.
The record is also being previewed by new track ‘Look At Your Hands’, which takes the percussive nature of ‘Nikki Nack’ and adds additional 80s production elements. Speaking of the track, Merrill said: “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”.
