Strawberry Jam (???!!!)

For all of you Animal Collective fans out there (yeah, you!), this is a bit of news that you have been waiting for. The band has a new album and it is entitled Strawberry Jam, and is set to be released for your sweet little ears in September. The band recorded the album in January in Tuscon, Arizona and there was apparently "...much Tecate drinking, barbecues, Javelina sightings and other desert oddities that might have influenced this record..." We have our fingers crossed for that one. Avey and Panda wrote most of the album, with help from Geologist and Deacon along the way, in places like Lisbon, NYC, Baltimore, and Paris so there is no telling what the album will sound like. We do have some idea though, seeing as how the band has been playing various songs off the album for a couple of years now on tour. We will be sure to keep you updated, because we know that you love the band as much as we do. The band will be here in a couple of weeks and we are very excited to see what they have in store for us.

Here's the tracklist:

1 Peacebone
Unsolved Mysteries
3. Chores
4. For Reverend Green
5. Fireworks
6. #1
7. Winter Wonder Land
8. Cuckoo Cuckoo
9. Derek

Check out this live video of the band playing Cuckoo, Cuckoo. Mmmmm.... Good ol' AC:
