Animal Collective announce The Painters EP, a new companion release to last year’s album Painting With. The EP will be available digitally this Friday, February 17th via Domino, almost a year to the date of their 10th studio album’s release. The 12” vinyl and CD version of the EP, with artwork by Brian DeGraw, is now available for pre-order HERE.
The EP contains three new and original tracks recorded during the Painting With era, and also includes a studio recording of “Jimmy Mack” (made famous by Martha & The Vandellas), a cover performed on their recent tours. Stream a track below.
