Toronto punks Fucked Up are an ambitious bunch, and that’s probably the most evident in their series of Chinese Zodiac singles. Every year, the band releases a single to mark the year on the Chinese calendar, and these songs are typically long, elaborately orchestrated affairs, sometimes with some prominent collaborators. Today, Fucked Up releases its fifth such single: “Year Of The Tiger.” It features contributions from champion arthouse director Jim Jarmusch, electro-goths Austra, and Duchess Says leader Annie-Claude Deschênes. And below, you can stream that song as well as all the other Chinese Zodiac singles. I promise: It’s a good way to spend your afternoon.
“Year Of The Tiger” is out today on Matador.
