Grizzly Bear - Shields

Last month, Grizzly Bear let us hear their excellent new song “Sleeping Ute,” the first shot from a long-rumored new album. And now we finally have the whats and whens on that new LP. Grizz album number four is called Shields, and it’s out in September. That’s the cover art above. Now we know that a new Grizzly Bear album will be arriving just two weeks after a new Animal Collective album. That’s pretty nuts. We were this close to a Kanye West/50 Cent-style release date showdown. Tracklist below.

01 “Sleeping Ute”
02 “Speak In Rounds”
03 “Adelma”
04 “Yet Again”
05 “The Hunt”
06 “A Simple Answer”
07 “What’s Wrong”
08 “Gun-Shy”
09 “Half Gate”
10 “Sun In Your Eyes”

Shields is out 9/18 on Warp

  5. Cover art makes me feel weird–I love it! Who designed this?

    • Richard Diebenkorn is the artist. His estate gave Grizzly Bear the rights to use his artwork for this album, and there’s going to be a lot more of it in the liner notes for CD/vinyl.
