Caribou is back. After releasing one of the best albums of 2012 as Daphni (Jialong) Canadian producer Dan Snaith returns to his most well-known moniker to at last follow up his 2010 masterstroke, Swim. Merge Records has announced that on October 7, Caribou’s Our Loveshall arrive, bringing with it collaborations with singer-producer Jessy Lanza and Oscar-nominated violinist Owen Pallett. Also, you can hear the first taste of it — a lush and lovely number dubbed “Can’t Do Without You” — below, which is the best news of all.
The label says the new one “is formed around a mixture of digital pop production, hip hop-inspired beats, muted house basslines, and a love of shuffling garage … The warm analog sounds of classic soul should not be overlooked either, for they weave themselves most intensely into the record’s DNA. In fact, Our Love is probably Caribou’s most soulful record to date, chock-full of heartfelt lyrics and organic nature that cut through bubbling synths and the blissful euphoria of their synthetic constructions.” Sounds about right.
