The Animal Collective Release New Single

Experimental rockers the Animal Collective have announced a new 7″ single to follow the June release of their well received full-length, Sung Tongs (FatCat). The single is to include “Who Could Win a Rabbit,” as well as one new exclusive track. The troop – Panda Bear, Avey Tare, Geologist and Deaken – has also planned to support the album by joining the Black Dice (DFA/FatCat) on a summer tour across the U.S. In addition to the tour, Panda Bear also plans to release his long-awaited solo album Young Prayer in September via Paw Tracks/Car Park. The Animal Collective were welcomed in 2003 as tour support for FatCat’s acclaimed Mum. The Fat Cat label also just released a video for the single, which is a take on the classic tale of the rabbit and the hare and can be found on the Fat Cat website.
