Appy clappy: Animal Collective launch app, containing new song snippet ‘Lying in the Grass’

New album ‘Painting With’ is due out next month.

Animal Collective have gotten involved in the app game, meaning people have even more reason to smudge their greasy fingers on screens in order to escape the harsh realities of life.

The app is called ‘Painting With’, and burrowed deep within the fancy futuristic gizmo is a new song, ‘Lying the the Grass’. Fans are encouraged to share images of their own, creations that will be displayed in real time on the Animal Collective site. It’s a social experience for all the family.

One downside is you actually end up hearing a snippet of the new song. Apps are cruel.

Get the iOS app here and check out UK dates below.

11 London, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
