Deerhunter announce new album 'Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?'

Deerhunter have revealed details of their eighth studio album, Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? will be released January 19th on 4AD.

The band also shared the video for the first track, the brilliant Death in Midsummer, which you can view below.

The album was co-produced by Deerhunter, Ben H. Allen III, (who worked on the band's previous albums, Fading Frontier and Halcyon Digest), Ben Etter and Cate Le Bon. Le Bon also appears on two tracks while Tim Presley of White Fence appears on one.

What follows is a note from Bradford Cox:

I.
l’études des parfums

here is the vomit of 20th century
solutions of india ink and ox bile
OUTSIDE INDUSTRIAL GARAGE
reset ORANGE GOAL
the pageant of chrome
 (and chrome colors: yellow chord / green rhythm)
STANDARDS:
here, the stars die in gardens
stale and malignant
Harpsichord and Bass Clarinet
composition of fabric and sulphur
matchless PRAX
Vampire Salon
of human dignity, compete
then we relax in glass
of no color
colorless liquid afternoons
of italian marble and
a gallery of snare sounds
 
II.
“Who, with traction_”
(placid matrix of Club Country
 in these pastel tonics)
Some Twilight Hunting
Plaid Motor Robes
oil of cypress DISTIL
ALPINE flashing
against dark lens
The Common Gentle Surface
abraded by Rum and Bay Leaves
so when your CARBON FLEX
of rolodex foxfire
 
III.
The union of ink and circuit ABSORBED BY GREEN
water
tinted with minerals
and ENGLISH RAIN
the landscape colors neutralized
by Payne’s Grey
OCHRE transfigured into Ceramic Blanche
shell pink in tins with yellow printing
HORSE hair and tired HORSE
 
(HORSE IS NOT MOVING)
fixed in cul-de-sac
 
IV.
CASED THE JOINT
with latex and enamel flash
reversed circulation to create
perfect chaos out of dust
and the discovery of the short scale of our own vision
we retreated back into print
the vagrants watching us with steel teeth
locked into place
ready for the music
chewing at cables and snares
 
V.
TOLEX landscape of northern industrial charcoal heath VAST
what floats out of transfixion
the black, flat passions
the synthesizer
The lead peeling off the plaster gallery of saints:
ST. VARIAX
ST. CLOROX
ST. CLB SODA
ST. TACK PIANO
(rooms of incense and nickel candles wrapped in brown paper.)
The DRACONIA County post office
yellowed letters in automatic tone
in mechanical percussion
incinerated
under lavender skies
of spinster piano music
 
VI.
VANQUISH THE MELODIC
