Animal Collective has shared a new single, Walker.

Following Prester John, the sunny, psychedelic track offers Beach Boys-esque vocal harmonies and serves as the latest preview of their forthcoming LP, 'Time Skiffs'. 

It arrives with a music video directed by Abby and Dave Portner. Speaking with Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe, band member Panda Beat (aka Noah Lennox) said:

"Mostly Walker is a tribute to Scott Walker who passed away around the time I began writing the song. Scott's music has meant a lot to me and he’ll always be a big inspiration. But there’s also a kind of exhaustion and resignation to the singer of Walker that belies a darker layer."

Abby Portner added: "It was so much fun to collaborate with Dave on this video, there were so many drawings and phone calls back and forth about how to make the record cover come to life and so much experimenting with movements of the band and acrobats to figure out how to get the flow right. I have never been on a set with so much excitement and clapping after takes when it all fell into place. It was such a warm, hard-working crew of people helping us figure out how to make it all happen, and is one of my favorite directing experiences ever."

The follow-up to 2016's 'Painting With' is due out on February 4 via Domino. They'll support it with a US tour next spring. Tickets are on sale.
