Panda Bear has shared a video for Dolphin, the opening track of his new album.

'Buoys' will arrive on February 8 via Domino and follow up this year's 'A Day With The Homies' EP, while his last LP was 2015's 'Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper'. The Animal Collective member co-produced and co-mixed the record with Rusty Santos in Lisbon, Portugal, marking the first time they've teamed up since 2007's 'Person Pitch'.

Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear, said: "The last three records felt like a chapter to me, and this feels like the beginning of something new."

Head below to check out the album's artwork, tracklist and new single. Dolphin finds Lennox's vocals taking centre stage as guitar and minimal samples, including dripping water, create a beautifully subtle accompaniment.

'Buoys' tracklist:

1.   Dolphin 
2.   Cranked 
3.   Token 
4.   I Know I Don’t Know 
5.   Master 
6.   Buoys 
7.   Inner Monologue 
8.   Crescendo 
9.   Home Free

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018
Photo: Lera Pentelute Earlier this summer, three like-minded indie-rock musicians began teasing their fans. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
