Animal Collective have unveiled "Today's Supernatural," the first single off their upcoming album Centipede Hz. After an extended absence, founding member Deakin rejoins the group on the new LP, marking the first time he's worked on a full Animal Collective album since 2007. "Today's Supernatural" is cacophonous, frantic and filled with ragged, weaving melodies that settle into a hazy groove.

"It's a pretty aggressive, relentless record," Deakin told Rolling Stone last month regarding Centipede Hz. "That probably comes from four dudes in a room writing music with really loud amps. It feels like an 18-year-old with a garage band."

"Today's Supernatural" will be available digitally tomorrow. Centipede Hz is set for a September 4th release.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
