Animal Collective have shared the latest single from their forthcoming Time Skiffs album, a radiant tribute to the late, great Scott Walker, simply titled “Walker”, NME reports.
The platform cites Zane Lowe, band member Panda Bear’s (aka Noah Lennox) interview with Apple Music 1’s saying the new track was written around the time of Walker’s March 2019 passing.
“Scott’s music has meant a lot to me,” Lennox said, “and he’ll always be a big inspiration”.
Despite its honourable origins, however, Lennox did point out that there is “also a kind of exhaustion and resignation to the singer of ‘Walker’ that belies a darker layer”.
“It was so much fun to collaborate with Dave on this video,” commented Abby Portner on the bewitching visuals that steer the video.
