tUnE-yArDs Nikki Nack Details

By Michael Nelson / March 3, 2014

The last album released by Merrill Garbus, aka tUnE-yArDs, 2011’s Whokill, was a pretty ludicrously huge success; it eventually topped the Pazz & Jop Poll, as good an aggregator of critical mass as any, handily beating out the likes of PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake and Watch The Throne. Garbus has just released the details for Whokill‘s follow-up: The new tUnE-yArDs LP will be titled Nikki Nack, and it’s out May 6 on 4AD. Garbus also revealed some new music in the form of a “MegaMix,” which puts all the songs from Nikki Nack into a single two-and-a-half-minute track. Check out the MegaMix and tour dates below.
