Animal Collective Announce New Album Time Skiffs, Share New Video

By Matthew Ismael Ruiz

Animal Collective have announced their new album Time Skiffs with a video for its first single, “Prester John.” The band’s follow-up to 2016’s Painting With is due out February 4 via Domino. They’ll also head out on a tour of the United States in 2022, kicking off in Richmond, Virginia on March 8. Check out the video for the video for “Prester John” and the full list of tour dates below.

Time Skiff was recorded in 2020 and mixed by Marta Salogni. “Prester John” is the result of two distinct songs—one by Avey Tare and one by Panda Bear—woven together. The accompanying music video was directed by Jason Lester.
