:: Another Caribou masterpiece. Been having it on heavy rotation play!
In early June, Caribou returned with the announcement of their new album Our Love. Merge (US) and City Slang (UK/Europe) will release Caribou’s sixth studio LP in October and the album announcement also revealed the lead single and Our Love opening track Can’t Do Without You. I’ve been on a business trip the day the track dropped on the internet, and I can still remember very clearly how it blew be away listening to it for the very first time, alone in my hotel room on some decent headphones.
Canadian producer and Caribou mastermind Dan Snaith has put out music under various monikers and in varying collaborations over the past years, the most prominent being the Jiaolong entitled debut LP as Daphni in October 2012. After a four-year hiatus, Our Love finally follows up to Caribou’s 2010 masterpiece Swim. The album will include collaborations with singer and producer Jessy Lanza as well as violinist and songwriter Owen Pallett.
The Extended Version of Can’t Do Without You was released on July 14, 2014 via Dan Snaith’s own Jiaolong imprint. You can order your copy of the one-sided limited edition 12″ vinyl single from the following sites: Recordstore.co.uk / Bleep / HHV.de. The extended version is also available digitally from iTunes or Beatport (recommended for all lossless lovers).
