Stream Deakin’s Debut Solo Album Sleep Cycle

Earlier this year, we reported that the part-time Animal Collective member Deakin was working on his first-ever solo album. And today, Deakin has announced that that album, entitled Sleep Cycle, will be out on Friday. As in: in two days. The album started with a famously messy Kickstarter-funded trip to Mali in 2009; Deakin recent wrote to his Kickstarter backers to update them that the album was indeed coming. And along with the album announcement, he’s shared “Just Am,” a hazy eight-minute single. It sounds a bit like Merriweather Post Pavilion-era AnCo, except with discernible, almost conversational lyrics. And with the song, he also has a bright, psychedelic video. Check it out below.

UPDATE: As it turns out, you can now stream the whole album online. Check it out below, too.

Sleep Cycle is out 4/8; get it from Deakin’s Bandcamp.
