Animal Collective have released their latest single today, “Strung with Everything,” along with a new video directed by Abby Portner. This is the band’s third single off their upcoming LP release, Time Skiffs, due out on February 4th.

“Recently for Animal Collective’s live shows I have been designing and animating all of the video content out of cut paper,” says Portner. “I have been editing together symbols and colored static silhouettes that match the music’s feeling and rhythm. The videos are like pictographs that tell a story organically and simply. For the ‘Strung with Everything’ video we wanted to continue with this process to match the style of the band’s live shows in a music video.”

Watch the video below and check out the band’s new set of tour dates in Europe later this year. Head here to get tickets. Hoping they get some more U.S. dates on the calendar or I’ll miss them this time around, but I’m guessing they’ll be touring on this new release for a while given how long they’ve been working on it.
