Stream tUnE-yArDs’ New Record “Nikki Nack” Before It’s Release

tUnE-yArDs‘ Merrill Garbus drops her third album Nikki Nack May 6th on 4AD, and to whet appetites she made the whole shebang available via stream. Check out the wild album over at NPR by clicking here.

Garbus recorded the follow up to 2011’s excellent Who Kill in Haiti last summer in a effort to “situate [herself] in a non-western musical tradition.” Nikki Nack will be the first tUnE-yArDs record to feature outside producers, as Garbus sought out names like Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A.). Check out the announced tour dates behind Nikki Nack below, as well as the video for album cut “Water Fountain”.
