With a new album ready for release next Friday, here is a new single/video from Tune-Yards.
The album is titled, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, the song is called Heart Attack.
Here is the record company blurb:
On the heart-rending bridge, bandleader Merrill Garbus pleads, “I’m only human,” as her voice dissolves into the digital, endlessly danceable abyss. The accompanying clip is directed by Mimi Cave who directed previous Tune-Yards videos ‘Bizness’ and ‘My Country’. The video is choreographed by Megan Lawson (Madonna, Katy Perry) and features improvisation by the cast of dancers.
Following its premiere as Zane Lowe’s World First on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, ‘Heart Attack’ is now available everywhere!
I can feel you creep into my private life is the fourth studio album from Tune-Yards, now a fully collaborative effort between Garbus and Nate Brenner who co-wrote and co-produced the album.
The new album is an unflinching examination of modern identity, intricately rendered in the manically infectious way that only Tune-Yards can. Drawing on a recent foray into DJing and inspired in part by C.L.A.W. (Collaborative Legions of Artful Womxn), her radio show highlighting female-identifying producers, I can feel you creep into my private life finds the band flirting with the dancefloor more than ever before, as four on the floor kickdrum underpins wild polyrhythms and slinky bass grooves.
The atypical arrangements seem to defy gravity, bursting like fireworks one moment and retreating inwards the next as the band blends pop, hip-hop, soul, folk, rock, 80’s house, African, and Caribbean music. Garbus’ lyrics explore her place in the world, ruminating on race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies.
Tune-Yards worked with a mixer Mikaelin “Blue” Bluespruce (Solange, Skepta, Kendrick Lamar). Much of the album was recorded at John Vanderslice’s new studio, Tiny Telephone Oakland, in Oakland, CA and mastered in Harlem, NY by Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper).
