On Domino they seem to want to avoid creating overblown expectations around Animal Collective’s latest movements. Yesterday, Sunday, they announced the release of a new single and with it came the chance to listen to both sides. Furthermore, although the single won’t be physically in the shops (on a 7” record) until this coming 26th June, both of the songs will be available on digital format from today. So you see, nothing to fan the promotional flames - texts praising it, teasers, previews lasting just a few seconds - none of that. You can listen to “Honeycomb” and “Gotham” on the widget that we’ve left you after the jump.
Whoever wants to reserve their copy of the 7” should follow this link. When you pre-order, you’ll receive a link to download both songs immediately.
