Tune-Yards have announced a new album. The follow-up to 2014’s Nikki Nack is titled I can feel you creep into my private life and it arrives January 19, 2018 via 4AD. Bandleader Merrill Garbus wrote the lyrics for the record, which was produced by longtime collaborator Nate Brenner, who is now officially part of Tune-Yards. Along with the announcement, the duo has shared a new track from the record called “Look at Your Hands.” In a press release, Garbus said of the song:
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 with 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.
