Animal Collective Releases New Song in Finger Painting App

Posted January 29th 2016


Baltimore rock veterans Animal Collective released a new single today, but you won’t be able to find it on YouTube or SoundCloud. “Lying in the Grass” is embedded within the band’s new iOS app, Painting With, which invites you to create brushes with your device’s camera for finger painting by yourself or with friends. (The app shares its name with the band’s forthcoming new LP.)

The song starts playing as soon as you enter the app’s canvas area, and you can paint until the song has run its course.

“Lying in the Grass” is going to enjoy a more conventional release on February 1st, and Painting With will be released on February 19th.
