:: This is my record of this year! Heavy rotation play all day long. Again and Again.
Ontario-born and UK-based producer Dan Snaith is about to release the fifth studio album under his electronic music moniker Caribou. It follows the Polaris Prize-winning 2007 record Andorra and acclaimed 2010 LP Swim. During the last four years, Snaith has been relentlessly touring the world, invited to their 2012 world tour by Radiohead, and released the first album of his more dancefloor-loving pseudonym Daphni. Now it’s ultimately time four Our Love, a new Caribou record.
Our Love drops officially in the UK/Europe on October 06, 2014 via City Slang. (Germany/Austria/Switzerland already see release on October 03 while Our Love is released in North America on October 07 via Merge Records. The album will be available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can pre-order digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of Our Love directly from Caribou’s Store, Merge Records or City Slang. You’ll receive both singles as immediate download upon digital pre-order.
The set of ten tracks features collaborations with Owen Pallett (with whom Snaith recently also collaborated under his Daphni moniker) and Canadian electronic pop artist Jessy Lanza. Upon the album announcement, Caribou described Our Love as “a mixture of digital pop production, hip hop inspired beats, muted house basslines and a love of shuffling garage.”
