tUnE-yArDs Share New Song, New Album Details & Tour Dates


tUnE-yArDs had a big day today, announcing additions to a massive tour that features the likes of Arcade Fire and The National, streaming a new song (“Water Fountain”, which you can watch below) as well as sharing the track list and release date for Nikkie Nack. The album, which will be out May 6th on 4AD, is tUnE-yArDs’ third and features the work of producers John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A.) and Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi).

tUnE-yArDs – “Water Fountain”

Merrill Garbus, who records as tUnE-yArds, has been turning heads with her infectiously mind-boggling brand of african-influenced pop since her debut, 2010’s Bird-Brains. “Water Fountain” is an interesting peak at what’s in store for Garbus, and what wild turn the tUnE-yArDs story is taking next.
