New Release & Video: Tune-Yards – I can feel you creep into my private life / Look At Your Hands

Tune-Yards have announced details of their highly-anticipated new record I can feel you creep into my private life, due for arrival on 19th January

Thematically, the twelve new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards’ most immediate and upbeat music yet – this is music to dance to

In addition, Tune-Yards reveal the new song Look at Your Hands, which can be heard below…

Bandleader Merrill Garbus had this to say about the song: “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 collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with a mixer Mikaelin “Blue” Bluespruce (Solange, Skepta, Kendrick Lamar). Much of the album was recorded at John Vanderslice’s new studio, Tiny Telephone Oakland, in Oakland, CA and mastered in Harlem, NY by Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper)
