Animal Collective have announced a new companion piece to their 2016 album ‘Painting With’. The four track EP, entitled ‘The Painters,’ is set to feature three previously unreleased songs recorded during the sessions for ‘Painting With’.
The EP will also feature a cover of Martha and the Vandellas’s ‘Jimmy Mack’. Despite only just being announced, the EP is set to release digitally on Friday 17th, with a physical vinyl/CD release following May 5th, all via Domino Records.
The band have shared a song from the EP, titled ‘Kinda Bonkers’. The clue’s in the name with this one – it’s a typically off the wall, zany number from a band that seems have a violent hated of normality.
