TUNE-YARDS Creeping back into your private life

Tune-Yards have announced new album I can feel you creep into my private life set for release January 19. They have also released a new single from the upcoming album, Look At Your Hands. Check it out below.

The 12 songs tackle themes such as race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies, yet the album is said to be the band’s most upbeat yet. And that’s saying something.

Band leader Merrill Garbus has said this about the new track, Look At Your Hands: “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.”

On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards is officially a duo. Garbus is joined by long-time collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus.

I can feel you creep into my private life out January 19. Single Look At Your Hands out now.
