In October, Dan Snaith shared his first track as Caribou in five years – the warm and addictive “Homeand announced a 13-date North American tour, with shows in Brooklyn and Toronto already sold out and more dates added. 

Today, Snaith follows up that single with the announcement of a new Caribou album, Suddenly, to be released via Merge on February 28th, 2020. Along with the announcement comes a new single, “You and I.” Stream it below.

Speaking of the track, Snaith says: ‘You and I’ was one of the first tracks on the album that I started, and one of the last tracks I finished; it existed in some form or other throughout the whole arc of making the record. It also captures a lot of what the record, and the title of the album, are aboutthe track changes suddenly and unpredictably, and it is about a change in my life that happened out of the blue.

Suddenly is the most surprising and unpredictable Caribou album to date. Though it retains the trademark Caribou warmth and technicolor, this album is littered with swerves and left turns. Songs drop out and morph into something else entirely just as they’re hitting their stride, samples chopped up beyond all recognition burst out of nowhere. “You and I” starts as a dreamy, undeniably Caribou-esque love song before breaking down into a huge chorus peppered with sampled yelps, and finally going completely rogue with a screaming guitar solo, which swaggers into being from nowhere.
